I know this isn't an answer, but I thought I would let you know that you aren't alone.

I found out today that my Mom had been denied for student loans, and she is the only person I have to cosign. It feels like the end of the world. It feels like my dreams of going to college are crumbling before my feet. I'm becoming a part of a statistic.

I think the only thing we can do is pray. Pray that somone somewhere will help us. And that maybe right now this seems like the most messed up thing and that this shouldn't be happening, but theres got to be a reason.

Knowing that there must be a reason is the only thing that's keeping me going.

I hope and pray that you can find help too. :D

A cosigner is a person who signs with another person for a loan of some sort due to credit issues or financial reasons. A cosigner unfortunately does not have as many rights as the person who is first listed on a loan. For example, if you purchase a car and your boyfriend/girlfriend cosigns for you and you two break up, they cannot take the car away from you. However, if you are late on payments, the cosigner will then be responsible for the payments.

It depends on how the agreement is worded, but usually - NO. The co-signor is NOT the co-owner but is only someone whom the lender has qualified to act as a financial "back up" to the purchaser.
