It is an unsaid rule in the world of loans that one needs a co-signer to ensure that the student loan gets approved. That said, it does not mean that you would not get loans if you do not have a co-signer to sign on your agreement. There are some lenders in the market who would offer loans to you with you having to worry about the co-signer.
Loan deferment is a special financing alternative that lets borrowers skip a payment without receiving derogatory credit reporting. The option to defer payments is available for most types of loans including mortgage, auto, credit cards, and student loans. Debtors must obtain lender approval and abide by deferment policies.
Students attending college at least half-time can apply for in-school deferment. This option is sometimes available to post graduates who have entered into college loan consolidation. In-school deferment is only available to students enrolled in or graduated from accredited schools and cannot be used for online education tuition.
The interest rate for these types of loans is plus 1 percent of prime and is adjusted monthly. For these types of loans, borrowers are completely responsible for all third party costs and points can be bought with these types of loans to keep long term costs down.
For commercial banks and large finance companies, "loan agreements" are usually not categorized although "loan portfolios" are often broadly characterized into "personal" and "commercial" loans while the "commercial" category is then subdivided into "industrial" and "commercial real estate" loans. "Industrial" loans are those that depend on the cashflow and creditworthiness of the company and the widgets or service that it sells. "Commercial real estate" loans are those that repay loans but that depend on the rental revenues paid by tenants who lease space, usually for extended times. More granular categorizations of loan portfolios exist but these are always variations around the larger themes.
