    Interest Rates

    Variable Rate

    The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for our graduate private education line of credit is variable1 and is based on the Prime index2 plus a margin.

    • Co-borrower not required, but having a qualified U.S. co-borrower could result in a lower interest rate

    Your Interest Rate4 is calculated by adding the Index plus a Margin5, subject to a minimum APR (Floor). The Floor rate is in effect any time the Interest Rate is below your assigned Floor rate. All loans subject to approval and restrictions may apply. We reserve the right to change rates for new applications at any time and without notice.

    Rate Disclosures

    1. The Annual Percentage Rate is subject to increase after consummation. Your Interest Rate is variable and may be adjusted quarterly on each January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (Adjustment Date) based on the Prime Indez as published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of the month immediately prior to the Adjustment Date (e.g., December, March, June and September). Any increase in the Index may increase the APR and the amount of your monthly payment.

    2. The "Index" for the quarter beginning October 1st, 2019, is 5.25%, which was the Prime index (Index) published in the Wall Street Journal on the first business day of September 2019

    3. Current offered rate(s) are calculated by using the Index, Margin and Floor value(s) in effect. Your specific Index, Margin, Floor, and/or credit approval will depend upon the student borrower’s and co-borrower’s (if applicable) credit qualification. Applicants may apply with a creditworthy U.S. co-borrower which may result in a better chance of approval and/or lower interest rate.

    4. The APR will not exceed 18.00%, or fall below the Floor rate regardless of the Index. Any increase in the Index may increase the APR and the amount of your monthly payment.

    5. Margin will be disclosed at account opening. 

    6. Your interest rate is fixed and your rate and/or credit approval depends upon the credit qualifications of the student borrower or coborrower (if applicable).

    7. Your actual rate within the range stated will be disclosed upon approval. Student borrowers may apply with a creditworthy coborrower which may result in a better chance of approval and/or lower interest rate.

    *If you set up auto-payments through the loan servicer, you may further reduce your rate by 0.25% when you select full repayment of principal and interest while in school or during the repayment period. However, the rate will not be reduced below any floor rate.

Necessary documentation includes one of the following:

    • F-1 visa and I-20, I-94 and a valid passport with photo

    What is the interest rate on my line-of-credit and how is it determined?
    Please see the interest rates section. 

    • 0.25% rate discount for optional enrollment in automatic electronic payment during repayment
    • 0.50% rate discount for having a U.S. co-borrower at the time of origination

    What are the repayment terms?

     

    While in school, you may choose to:

    • Make interest-only payments
    • Defer both principal and interest
    • Make full principal and interest payments

    Once your six (6) month grace period ends, your loan will enter repayment based on the terms outlined below. You may elect for graduated repayment at this time - lowering your monthly loan payments for the first two (2) years after starting repayment - which may be a valuable benefit if you are just beginning a new career and managing a tight budget.

    Variable Rate Option: the repayment term is 20 years if your principal balance at repayment is $40,000 or less, and 25 years if your principal balance at repayment is more than $40,000.

    Fixed Rate Option: the repayment schedule is fixed at 10 years regardless of the amount you borrow. Full repayment begins at the end of the grace period, unless full repayment is selected during enrollment.
