Loans and Lines of Credit

Let's face it, life can be expensive. Sometimes you need access to additional funds for things like tuition, housing, transportation or emergencies. Smart borrowing makes sense and we have the products and advice to help.

A student line of credit is an affordable way to make continuing education possible. Students can borrow to assist with the cost of attending a post-secondary educational institution, including community college, university, or technical school and it allows you the flexibility to take out and pay back portions of your loan whenever you want.

Features:
  • Student lines of credit available for both full and part-time students.
  • Convenient, affordable interest-only payments while in attendance.
  • Competitive rates of interest and flexible repayment schedules to meet a students needs.
  • Repayment  will commence in the form of blended payments of principal and interest twelve months after course completion.
  • Amortization to a maximum of 15 years (if over $25,000). Credit Cards are available for convenient access.

Line-of-credit means you apply once and advance funds as needed. You pay interest only on amount used.
