- Almost all students will first apply for student loans that are funded by the federal government. The awards provided by the federal government are not affected by where a student lives in the United States.
- Many governments at the state level can provide financial aid to their residents. These awards can include: tuition waivers, scholarships, grants, or work-study.
- Some college institutions have funds available for financial aid. These awards are mostly given out on a need or merit basis.
When the above mentioned fails to cover the overall cost of attending college, a student can turn to private lenders. Private loans are not overly concerned about the residency of a student or cosigner or that of the location of the institution.
