Student Loans

We provide affordable higher education financing for students through cuStudentLoans, a credit union managed network.

The cuScholar Private Student Loan can be used to pay for any qualified education expense including tuition, room and board, books, and other school-related expenses. There is no prepayment penalty and borrowers are required to make a modest $25 minimum payment towards interest while in school to promote responsible repayment habits and pay down some interest accrual while in school.

  • No Origination Fee for all student borrowers
  • .25% rate discount for ACH payments*
  • 1% Interest Rate Reduction once 10% of the loan principal is repaid during the full repayment period
  • 30-Day No-Fee Return Policy allows you to cancel the loan within 30 days of disbursement without fees or interest
  • Cosigner Release available for creditworthy borrowers after 24 consecutive on-time principal and interest payments
*Rate reduction subject to floor rate. Requires continued enrollment of automatic payments. If the automatic payment is cancelled any time after enrollment, the rate reduction will discontinue until automatic payment is reinstated. May be suspended during periods of forbearance and deferment.
