Loans should be considered after pursuing scholarship and sponsorship opportunities. The subpages of this section provide details on Federal Loan and private loan options.

The only loan programs from U.S. financial institutions available to International students almost exclusively require a credit-worthy U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident co-signer. Berkeley Haas has borrowing options for international students; please refer to the International Loan page for more information.

A Note on Disbursements

The Executive MBA program is grouped into its own academic year. Please note that the borrowing capacity is subject to change based on living expense estimates. Loan disbursements will credit to your billing account and pay any outstanding charges. If a credit balance remains, a refund will be directly deposited into your bank account if you have signed up for EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer).

The Haas Financial Aid Office does not receive, and will not accept, inducements from lenders or the government in exchange for inclusion on a private loan comparison chart or in exchange for promoting their loans on our website; nor does the Haas School share in the profits from lenders on our preferred lender list.
