Student Loans

What are they? 

FFCU provides affordable higher education financing for students and recent graduates through cuStudentLoans, a credit union managed network.

 

Private Student Loan

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.

 

Private Student Loan Consolidation

The cuGrad Private Student Loan Consolidation can be used to consolidate and refinance outstanding private student loan debt. A private student loan consolidation combines all private student loan payments into one easy monthly payment. By refinancing your private student loan debt, you can potentially significantly lower your payments and reduce your interest rate.
