Tuition is expensive — we can fill the gap. Federal loans may not cover your full tuition or other college expenses. As a not-for-profit credit union, we can provide lower rates and fees on private student lending to meet all your needs.

  • Line of Credit – request additional funds if needed in the future
  • Lower rates than "traditional" private lenders
  • Zero loan origination fees
  • Deferred principal and interest while in school
  • Flexible repayment terms
  • Typically require a co-signer
  • Easy one-time application

We also offer a college checking account and college savings account!

The function of this loan (line of credit) is to cover the funding gap—the difference between the cost of attendance and the amount covered by other lower-cost sources of financial aid, such as scholarships and Federal loans for undergraduates. 

  • The maximum line of credit is $50,000 for undergraduates.
  • Loans with total amounts under $40,000 have a maximum repayment term of 20 years.
  • Loan amounts over $40,000 have a maximum repayment term of 25 years. Interest rates are variable and indexed against Wall Street Journal Prime Rate, and adjustable quarterly. Several repayment plans are available, including in school deferment (interest accrues) and graduated payment options.
