As a student progresses in his/her graduate journey, it is important to be equipped properly to merge with the next chapter of their lives. One vital aspect to consider is acquiring an auto loan as not only do student need to have a vehicle to keep up with the fast pace society but also to build their personal credit. When preparing to apply for a car loan, there are a few things to consider that will increase your chances of optimal results.


Firstly, it is beneficial to have a job. By having a job, you are letting the bank know that you are capable of making the payments. As a student, studies come first and it is understandable if a job is not in the picture yet. If you are unemployed, preparing a decent down payment and having a co-signer will help.

Secondly, there are banks and lenders out there that have programs that are fit for a student. Students usually have minimal credit history, at a slightly higher interest rate; certain lenders are willing to offer an approval given that the amount to borrow is affordable.

If you are an international student and not yet a permanent resident, it is possible to acquire a car loan. When you apply for a auto finance with a ‘9’ social insurance number, you must present proof that you will be within the country for an extended period of time and also provide a source of income that will be able to cover your car payments.
