Harvard University Employees Credit Union (HUECU) provides private educational loans to international students with no co-signer. There may be other private educational loans available for international students, and we urge all students to investigate all options, including home country and/or country-of-residence loan options. Harvard does not prefer, recommend, or endorse any particular lender and accepts loans from any lender (unless prohibited by law)

OFAC Sanctions Note: Lenders based in the United States (including HUECU) may not be able or willing to make loans to students from countries on the United States Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Sanctions; or to individuals identified by name, or related to or connected with anyone on the Specially Designated Nationals List. All applicants from these countries are strongly cautioned to be prepared to make their own financial arrangements to attend HBS.

Harvard University is committed to the highest standard of ethics and conduct. Please review the Harvard University Code of Conduct.
