A co-borrower is an additional borrower who can be a spouse, parent, sibling, or any family member, or even a friend, who will be equally liable for the loan. Both the borrower and co-borrower need to sign the contract, are equally responsible to pay the loan, and both will receive collection reminders.

The co-borrower needs to prepare any valid ID (even school ID), one proof of residence, one proof of billing, and/or proof of source of income.
As the borrower, you will need to prepare your school ID (or any valid ID), one proof of residence, and your school assessment form.

Before getting a plan, find out how much you need first (this is called your plan’s “Principal” amount). Do you need coverage for your full tuition? Or do you only need partial coverage? Sometimes it’s better to ask for partial coverage to minimize your monthly payments at the start. You can always add more coverage when you need it.
Now that you know what you need, you can now see how much you will have to repay. This will be bigger than what you asked for due to the interest rates charged to your plan.
