I'm 17 years old. Will it be possible for me to get a loan?

In the US, you have to be 18 to sign a contract (legally). You can't apply for a loan until you're 18, and most people have to have someone co-sign with them to get one, even at 18.

The best thing you can do would be to go apply for a government grant for college. A legitimate place where you can find this is on http://financialfreedomexpress.org. This is a legitimate service which is based in Iowa.

Here in Netherlands you must have job contract to get load.And 17 years old is not allowed to have job they need to go to school until 18 years old.But then if they cannot afford school they got help from the government for tuition fee,and for the boarding house.Its pretty cool actually becouse in that case lots of student stay stuying until they finish school and then find a job.Have a nice day!

Unlikely. Your parents would probably have to co-sign for something like that.

No offense, but at 17, why would you need a loan? By law, you must be 18 and working a legitimate job that would cover the payments.
