Feb. 8, 2011 - PRLog -- Student loans continue to be the lifeblood of college education. More & more students are simply applying for student loans without realizing what else is out there. Once you've come to grips with this like I have you start wondering things.

Like is a cosigner really needed when applying for a student loan? The answer is Yes & No.

There are options available to everyone that can allow them to obtain a student loan without a cosigner, even if you have terrible credit. But don't assume every is great. Since these companies are taking a huge risk taking a loan from them requires agreeing to interest rates some might deem insane. And some of these types of companies aren't even legit, so do your homework.

Then there is the more usual option for the individual with not enough credit (usually younger individuals) or those with bad credit. And it is to simply utilize a cosigner. A cosigner is usually a good idea because it is a shared responsibility, giving yourself a safety net on the loan. For example, if you cannot pay your loan each month your cosigner (if intelligent) is obligated to pay so that their credit isn't ruined.

Obviously there are many things you can weigh when discussing the need for a cosigner or not, but at we've done some of that for you.
