"Wall St. meets Campus Commons" could be an alternate title for this post.
Harvard became the latest university to announce the loss of its CitiAssist loan program. Citibank stopped accepting loan applications on Oct. 6 at Harvard.
International students are hardest hit by the ending of this program. It had provided loans to them without requiring a domestic co-signor. That requirement frequently is a formidable barrier for international students wanting to attend US graduate programs.
CitiAssist has also been canceled at MIT, Michigan, Cornell, and other top graduate programs.
