Consider Applying With a Co-signer

For student borrowers under 17, a creditworthy co-signer is required. Most PNC Solution Loan borrowers have applied with a co-signer, as applying with a co-signer may increase your chances of approval. It's important for the borrower and co-signer to work together when completing the application.

Co-signer Process

The student borrower and the co-signer complete their portions of the application separately. First, the borrower completes their portion of the application, which includes entering the co-signer's contact information. After the borrower has completed their section of the application, CampusDoor, our loan origination service partner, will send an email to the co-signer with a link back to the application website where the co-signer can complete their portion of the application.
