If I co-signed for a private student loan, can I be released from the loan?

Generally speaking, you cannot be released from your obligation to repay the loan. In some cases, private student loans do have co-signer release options; you would find this information in the terms and conditions of the loan and on the lender’s or servicer’s website. Contact your lender or servicer for more details.
