Will you be able to get a student loan after filing for bankruptcy ?

student loan

The Bankruptcy Code makes it illegal for government agencies to refuse student loans to those who have filed bankruptcy. 11 USC 525(c).

So if you have filed bankruptcy, you are still eligible to receive student loans that are backed by the government (Title IV loans) such as the Stafford Loan.

If you get a student loan from a private lender, that’s a different matter entirely. The Bankruptcy Code prohibits discrimination only from government agencies, not private lenders.

Private lenders, such as banks, are under NO obligation to give you a student loan if you have filed bankruptcy or have other credit problems.

This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to obtain a student loan from a private lender or bank if you have filed bankruptcy. It just means that private lenders are allowed to consider your credit history including bankruptcy filings in evaluating your student loan application.
