Common Questions

Too shy to ask? Here are some of the questions we usually get:

Do I qualify for CommonBond's MBA loan?

  • You must be a US citizen or permanent resident.
  • You must be a full-time student at one of the MBA programs in our network.
  • We will review your credit to make an instant decision on your application.

How much should I borrow for my MBA program? Is there a maximum I can borrow?

  • Your school will set your maximum borrow amount based on their published cost of attendance (which includes living expenses) minus scholarships and other forms of assistance such as grants, fellowships, and financial aid. Our calculator can help you determine how much to borrow this year.
  • The maximum loan amount we lend per academic year is $110,000.

Do I need a cosigner to take out a loan with CommonBond?

No, you don't need a cosigner if you meet our minimum credit criteria.

How do I apply?

  • The online application is simple and takes minutes.
  • Once you're approved, you'll select a loan product and e-sign your loan disclosures.
  • Then, we will confirm your attendance and loan amount with your school. This can take anywhere from 5 days to 3 weeks, depending on your school.
  • Once your school certifies the loan, we will notify you by email and disburse the funds directly to your school. Read more here.

What are the terms and repayment options of the loan?

  • We offer 10- and 15-year fixed and variable MBA loans.
