Off to College? Learn about Private Student Loans6/15/2020

Whether your classes will be online or in-person, you want to be sure you have enough funds to cover tuition, rent/dorm costs, books, and everything you need for a successful college experience.

At MCCU, we’ve got financial products to help you through every stage of life, including college life! Through our partnership with Sallie Mae, we offer affordable undergraduate and graduate private student loans, including:

Smart Option Student Loan® for Undergraduate Students

This loan can help you pay for a bachelor’s degree, associate’s degree, or certificate from a degree-granting school.

Sallie Mae Parent Loan

Parents can give the gift of education to their children with a loan in their own name.

Graduate Loans

Choose a loan designed for school-certified expenses in graduate programs, including medical, dental, MBA, law, health professions, and master’s/doctorate degrees.

Each of these loans offers:

  • Competitive variable and fixed interest rates
  • No origination fee or prepayment penalty
  • Multiple repayment options
  • Borrow up to 100% of all your school-certified expenses for the entire year like tuition, fee, books, housing, meals, travel, and even a laptop.

Student borrowers may have a better chance of approval by adding a cosigner such as a parent or other creditworthy adult.

Borrow Responsibly

We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.
