Nomad Credit has relationships with lending partners that provide credit, insurance, and other financial products to international students and/or visa holders currently or planning to live in the U.S. or elsewhere globally. Our platform is designed to efficiently connect those that need credit, insurance, and other financial products with partners that will provide them.

Yes, you may search for options if you aren't a U.S. citizen. Nomad Credit is a global platform and was created to help U.S. and non-U.S. citizens find the academic and financial products they need. This includes international students studying or planning to study in the U.S.

All information that was filled out in a previous search will be auto-filled into your new search. Any personal information that has changed since your last search will need to be changed on your new search.

For student loan products, lenders often need someone on the loan application to provide 'security' for the loan. That's often someone with an adequate amount of income or collateral. If you do not have income or collateral, having a creditworthy cosigner with either may increase your loan options and reduce the interest rate on your loan.

Each lender may have different eligibility requirements, but generally a cosigner can be a parent, relative, spouse, friend or anyone else who is willing to help. They should have an acceptable credit score, income or collateral. They are sometimes required to make your loan payments if you can't.

You will be notified of any potential options after submitting a search.

If there aren't any loan options that fit your profile, we may reach out to help you find a lender not currently on our platform. We are an evolving company, so not all lenders that we know are on our platform yet.
