I need to find student loans in order to go back to college in September, but my parents have terrible credit and I can't find an alternative cosigner. I don't know what to do.

None of the organizations my school suggests for loans will approve a loan due to my parents credit. Is there anywhere that will? I understand that I might need to pay more interest in the future and that there might be other drawbacks as well, but loans are the only way I'll be able to afford to go to school.
Additional question: I know that student loans will pay for on-campus housing, but could I use funds from a loan towards an apartment? I want to avoid living on campus if at all possible, but I probably won't be able to afford to do so without a loan.
