Paying for College the Smart Way
To give our members an option to help with college expenses, we have partnered with the Smart Option Student Loan from Sallie Mae. This loan is available to our members attending college, members with children attending college, as well as members' family members.
As college tuition costs continue to rise, more students are in need of private student loans to help fund the gap between financial aid and college expenses. With the Smart Option Student Loan, you can choose from three in-school repayment options to help pay off you loan faster and save money compared to the conventional private loan.
Visit the student loan section under the loans tab of the credit union's website for more information or click the Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan banner on our home page.
