A Note About Private Student Loans

Before taking out a private student loan, make sure to take advantage of any federal student loans, grants, or scholarships you have access to. Federal student loans often include benefits and lower interest rates, so be sure to consider all of your options before applying for a private loan.

Flexible Repayment Options

Choose from three repayment options to find the plan that best fits your lifestyle. Also, enjoy a six-month grace period after you get your degree.

  • Immediate Repayment
    Start making payments on both principal and interest right away.
  • Interest-Only Repayment
    Make interest-only payments while in school, and for the six-month grace period after graduation or falling below half-time status.
  • Deferred Repayment
    As long as you’re enrolled in undergraduate or graduate program at least half time, you have the option to delay payments on principal and interest for up to 78 months (plus a six-month grace period).

Why would I want a cosigner?

Cosigners help you qualify for private student loans and may help reduce your interest rate. As a student, it’s likely you’ll need a trusted individual with a solid credit score to act as your cosigner.

To qualify for a U-fi student loan, you’ll need to:
  • Be an undergraduate or graduate student enrolled at least half-time at an eligible institution.
  • Be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident, or have a qualified cosigner who meets those requirements
  • Pass a credit check and provide proof of income, or have a qualified cosigner who meets those requirements

Your cosigner should be a trusted individual who has strong credit, a reliable annual income (at least $36,000), and is a U.S. citizen or has permanent residency status. Your cosigner can be released from the loan after 24 consecutive on-time payments have been made.2

A cosigner is a creditworthy person willing to assume responsibility for loan liabilities if the borrower fails to repay the loan. Applying with a cosigner may help you qualify for a loan and also lower your interest rate. Cosigners must be eligible U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
