Thinking about being a cosigner?

If you’re the parent or guardian of a student in school, make sure you think carefully before deciding to be a cosigner on a private student loan. It’s natural to want to help them, just don’t forget: By agreeing to cosign the loan, you are just as responsible for the debt as the student. If the student makes late payments, or doesn’t make their payments at all, this affects you as the cosigner. Not only does this debt appear on your credit report, but you may become liable for the remaining debt on the student loan.

Make sure you have a conversation with them about what being a cosigner means. Talk to them about how to budget for their student loan payments, and make sure your own budget can cover them if your student can’t pay. Ask your lender if they offer a cosigner release, where you can be released from responsibility for the loan.
