Student Loans

Student loans help to keep your savings intact for other uses, can offer low APRs, and provide flexibility in selecting a payment option that works best for you.

So how do you choose a lender? Here’s what to watch for and what questions to ask when you research a loan financier:

  • Their business model: Why do they do what they do?
  • Are there teaser rates or is everything upfront?
  • How will your work history and current salary affect your interest rate?
  • Will your interest rates be fixed or variable?
  • How does your credit score affect loan terms?
  • What is your origination fee?
  • What is the total APR on your loan?
  • Do you have co-signer options? Will you be penalized for not using a co-signer?
  • How long does it take to apply?
  • Can they finance your tuition deposit?
  • Are cost-of-living loans available?
