Looking for Ways to Pay for College? Vermont Federal Offers Student Loans!
Vermont Federal Credit Union knows that financing college tuition can be both stressful and challenging. We now offer student loans to help fill the funding gaps that federal aid can leave behind. We are able to offer financing options that will help you achieve your dream of higher education.
Take advantage of the benefits our student loan has to offer:
- No origination fees
- Lower interest rates
- Line of credit up to $50,000
- Deferment of principal and interest while in school
- Flexible repayment terms
- Co-signers can be removed after consistent payments
- Graduated repayment to make monthly payments more manageable
Who is eligible?
Students enrolled at least half-time in a four-year degree granting program, with a qualified co-signer. If you are not already a member of Vermont Federal, you must become a member.
How much can I borrow?
Once approved, students can borrow from $1,000 up to $30,000 per year based on the cost of attendance. The aggregate maximum (total amount you can borrow throughout your college career) is $50,000.
Do you require a co-signer?
No, but having a co-signer is highly recommended as it may improve your chances of meeting approval criteria, and help you qualify for a lower rate.
How quickly will I receive my loan?
Funds can often be disbursed within 7 business days of your loan approval.
Who will approve, fund and service your loan?
Your loan application will be approved, funded and serviced by Vermont Federal's partner, Credit Union Student Choice (CUSC). Vermont Federal will be available to assist you with post-funding issues or with other products and services that meet your needs.
