Loan availability

Sallie Mae has agreed to provide student loan funding to students enrolled in the Law Enforcement Training Institute.

Apply or learn more about Sallie Mae's Smart Option Student Loan.

Be sure to follow each step of the application process when applying for a private/alternative student loan. If you need assistance, contact the lender, who can walk you through their process and update you on the status of your loan.

An alternative loan is a privately financed educational loan in the student's name, which is offered by banks and other organizations. These loans are not federally funded. The interest rates on these loans often are either fixed or variable, are not capped and are tied to the prime rate or LIBOR index.

Alternative loans are credit-based loans and, in most cases, a credit-worthy co-applicant is required. With a co-applicant, the risk to the lending institution is reduced and the borrower can receive a better interest rate. Individual eligibility will vary according to cost, need and any other aid being received by the student.
