Getting student loans to attend foreign colleges

Looking for advice or first-person experiences around attending foreign colleges or universities as a U.S. citizen (not participating in a study abroad program). How can you pay for tuition at these schools? What student loans are available? Are federal student loans an option? Private student loans? Requirements: Would welcome comments from financial aid experts or student loan experts familiar with this topic, or students who have navigated this themselves. Please respond with initial thoughts/background on this topic and I will follow up as needed. Include your name, title, and organization/company as well.
