Following is a list of the top student loans available:
Citizens Bank: For student loans availed from this bank, there is no charge or fee for origination or application of the loan or early repayment of the loan.

The loans are extended to graduate or undergraduate students and the repayment time of the loans can be 5, 10 or 15 years. Loans are available from the range of $1,000 to $295,000, depending on the degree.

Any student dealing with an economic problem after graduation can apply for forbearance to pay back the loan. The rates of the loan may be fixed or variable. Loans are available to students at undergraduate, graduate and MBA levels, with repayment periods of 5, 10 and 15 years.
Connext: The loans are usually serviced by Connext, but the ultimate funds come from a group of lenders. There is no fee required to be paid for origination, application or early repayment of loans.
