The smart choice for college expenses - an SLFCU private student loan

Pay for college with a student loan with great rates and benefits. You can borrow up to $30,000 per year and get lower rates if you have good grades.

An SLFCU private student loan can pay for any qualified expenses including:

  • Tuition
  • Books
  • Room and board
  • Computers
  • Past-due tuition bills.

Loan proceeds will be sent to the school by check or electronic funds transfer (EFT). The school will determine the disbursement dates of the loan during the certification process. If the loan funds exceed school-required expenses, the school will issue a refund to the student.

Apply today to ensure you have enough financing, and cancel later if you receive other funding. A 30-day, no-fee return policy allows you to cancel the loan if you end up with enough financing through federal funding, scholarships, or grants.

Before you borrow, take advantage of any federal funding, scholarships, and grants for which you may qualify.

To apply
You must be enrolled at least half-time at an eligible school.
Applying with a cosigner can increase your likelihood of approval and might result in a lower loan rate.

During repayment
The repayment period is 10 years.
You can get a 1% interest rate reduction when you’ve paid 10% of the loan. Additionally, you can get a 0.25% rate discount by making electronic payments.
