Personal Loan Eligibility

Before you apply for a SoFi Personal Loan, we’d like you to be aware of the eligibility criteria. In addition to the information noted below, you must also meet our underwriting criteria to obtain a loan from SoFi.

  • You are a US citizen, permanent resident or visa holder (E-2, E-3, H-1B, J-1, L-1, or O-1) 18 years or older.
  • If you are a permanent resident, you must be able to show an image or scan of your permanent residency card (Green Card), and your Green Card must have a total validity (from issuance to expiry) of more than 2 years. If you are a visa holder, you must be able to show an image or scan of your valid visa and proof of an approved application for a Green Card, including either an I-140 approval notice (Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker), or receipt or approval of an I-485 (Application for application to register permanent Residence).
  • You reside in a state where SoFi Lending Corporation is authorized to lend.
  • You are at least the age of majority in your state.
  • You must be employed, have sufficient income from other sources, or have an offer of employment to start within the next 90 days.

Loan eligibility depends on a number of additional factors, including your financial history, credit score, career experience, and monthly income vs. expenses.

For applicants with one or more existing SoFi personal loans, the applicant must have made at least three payments, as well as the most recent three payments on-time (not late), on each loan in order to be considered eligible for an additional personal loan. Note that Michigan residents can only have one SoFi Personal Loan at any given time.

State Eligibility:

Fixed and variable-rate caps may be lower in some states due to legal requirements and may impact your eligibility to qualify for a SoFi loan.
