Default Signing Affidavit..

Hey, my friend just got admission in a college and since she is not a US citizen or permanent resident. So, she needed a co-signer who is one but unfortunetly she couldnt get one cuz no one other then your own family member will trust u and sign and affidavit or co-sign a loan. Now her aunt who came with her husband on his work visa,been living for 9 yrs, recetly went out of status(I dont know the reason as its personal) has bank account and of course some savings. So my friend's aunt signed the Affidavit for my friend that was required by the university in order to process the student visa. Now after the application is filed, my friend is worried and maybe you can help her answer the questions. Her english isnt so good so Im going this for her(thu mine is bad too

-I do know one thing that if a person getting a student loan is not a US citizen/permanent resident she/he would need a co-signer who is one and I also know that for sure that the loan agency check the credit history of a co-signer. SO,since my friend's aunt isnt a permant resident or a US citizen(she is out of status in fact) so she cannot be my friend's co-signer for the student loan BUT what about Affidavit?
do the Immigration check the backgound of the person who signed the Affidavit,attached with her bank statments, for the student visa process or they mainly will check the student's background? my friend is concerned as she doesnt want her aunt to be in any trouble!

Hi, there is nothin' to be confused about. There are many many student here who cant speak English well, in fact, most of my spanish/latinos/germans friends have issues taking classes here but they manage so why cant my friend !! Her spoken English is fair but when it comes to writing she really has to work hard on it..anyways, as for her Aunt:

-The affidavit that her aunt signed along with her bank stmts attached had two parts. The first one only asked the sponsor to check whether he/she will fully support or partially and the second part said, 'if you're a US citizen fill out the part below' and my friend's aunt DID NOT fill that part out or claimed to be a US citizen. She also knows that she is illegal here and she cannot LIE about being legal.
