Our Student Loan Programs use interest rates calculated from daily, simple interest, using a 365.25-day year; and are based on a LIBOR Rate adjusted quarterly using the average of the 3-month LIBOR. The minimum interest rate charged for all loan types is 4.00%. The maximum rate is 15%, or alternatively a maximum rate as approved by the National Credit Union Administration based on FICO score.

Before You Apply
Get a co-signer
Undergraduate and graduate students who are not employed must apply with a credit-worthy co-signer. As the student, you are the primary borrower on the loan. Your co-signer can be anyone – a parent, mentor, neighbor, or friend. Even if you are currently employed, you may want to consider getting a credit-worthy co-signer for a better rate and chance of approval.
Gather your information
Save time by being prepared for the online application process. If possible, ask your co-signer to sit with you during the application process. You both will need to have the following information handy:
- Current address and phone number
- Social Security Number
- Driver License
- Employment information
- Reference information (name, address, relation to you, and phone)
After You Apply
It is important that you complete these two additional steps:
- Send any extra documents that are requested.
- Watch for your Consumer Credit Agreement to be sent electronically. When you receive it, sign it and return it immediately.
It is important that you respond quickly to requests for information because funding cannot occur until we have all the needed documents.
