solman, when I was in school, I pulled in a fair amount of money via grants, assistantships, etc. Unfortunately, some of that income is not considered "income" - that is, it's not taxable, and probably doesn't count towards income for a credit rating. Especially since times and finances are tough.
A good consideration might be if the school has a credit union (faculty have to put their money someplace) that you can join, and then work a loan through them.
