Can a student lender consider my sex or marital status when deciding whether to give me a student loan?
A creditor cannot discriminate on the basis of sex or marital status.
A creditor generally may not ask applicants for student loans about their sex or the sex of a co-signer on an application form. However, a creditor may ask applicants to select a title (Mr., Miss, Mrs., or Ms.) on the application form, if the form states this is optional.
A creditor generally may not ask about your marital status or the marital status of a co-signer if you are applying for a student loan.
