  1. I have learned a few important things via your post. I’d personally also like to mention that there can be situation where you will get a loan and do not need a cosigner such as a Fed Student Aid Loan. In case you are getting that loan through a classic financier then you need to be prepared to have a co-signer ready to make it easier for you. The lenders may base their decision on a few issues but the most significant will be your credit worthiness. There are some loan companies that will furthermore look at your work history and determine based on this but in many instances it will depend on your report.
