The certified need is typically the Cost of Attendance (COA) less other financial assistance and aid received.

The University will certify the requested loan amount with the credit union.

 

Interest Rates

Variable Rate

The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for our private education line of credit is variable1 and is based on the Prime index2 plus a margin.

The current offered rate3 is 10.25% APR 

  • 0.25% rate discount for optional enrollment in automatic electronic payment during repayment4

Your Interest Rate4 is calculated by adding the Index plus a Margin5, subject to a minimum APR (Floor). The Floor rate is in effect any time the Interest Rate is below your assigned Floor rate. All loans subject to approval and restrictions may apply. We reserve the right to change rates for new applications at any time and without notice. Credit union membership and a minimum share deposit is required. Contact us for membership details.

 

Rate Disclosures

  1. The Annual Percentage Rate is subject to increase after consummation. Your Interest Rate is variable and may be adjusted quarterly on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (Adjustment Date) based on the Prime Index as published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the month immediately prior to the Adjustment Date (e.g., December, March, June and September). Any increase in the Index may increase the APR and the amount of your monthly payment.

  2. The "Index" for the quarter beginning July 1st, 2022, is 4.00%, which was the Prime index (Index) published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of June 2022

  3. Current offered rate(s) are calculated by using the Index, Margin and Floor value(s) in effect. Your specific Index, Margin, Floor, and/or credit approval will depend upon the student borrower’s and co-borrower’s (if applicable) credit qualification. Applicants may apply with a creditworthy U.S. co-borrower which may result in a better chance of approval and/or lower interest rate.

  4. The APR will not exceed 18.00%, or fall below the Floor rate regardless of the Index. Any increase in the Index may increase the APR and the amount of your monthly payment.

  5. Margin will be disclosed at account opening.

You may elect for graduated repayment at this time - lowering your monthly loan payments for the first two (2) years after starting repayment - which may be a valuable benefit if you are just beginning a new career and managing a tight budget.

The repayment term is 15 years.
