If after receiving student aid from the state of Wisconsin and the U.S. Department of Education, you still find yourself in need of money, there are still options. With the growing trend of higher education fees, many students turn to private Wisconsin student loans to close the gap between their awards and expenses. Private student loans are awarded through a private lender that is not associated with the government. You can get some pretty good deals. Check out our private student loans start page.
