We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.
All loans and lines of credit and all terms referenced are subject to credit approval and other conditions. Other terms, conditions, fees and restrictions may apply.
Parent Loan: This loan must be used to pay for eligible student expenses at participating degree-granting schools. The student cannot be a borrower or cosigner and is not responsible for repaying the loan. The borrower, cosigner, and student must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. If the school issues a refund directly to the student, the borrower and cosigner (if applicable) are still responsible for repaying that amount. Applications are subject to a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.
Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined in your promissory note—first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.
