Student Loans

We offer an affordable variable-rate loan, serviced in house. The rate is repriced quarterly, based on the Prime Rate (as published in the Wall Street Journal) plus a 3.00% margin with a lifetime cap of 18.00%. The applicant must be a SVFCU member and enrolled in a full or part time program at an institution of higher learning including undergraduate, graduate, and vocational schools.

If qualified, one may borrow up to $10,000 annually to an aggregate of $50,000 over five years. Loan proceeds are restricted to school related costs. A copy of the tuition bill, course schedule, and verification of address are required once per year. Loan amounts for part time and vocational programs will be determined by the tuition bill less any financial aid received.

Sufficient income is needed to meet the loan obligation or a co-signer will be required.

Interest only payments are required until six months after graduation or 30 days after leaving school prior to graduation. The loan will then convert to a repayment of principal plus interest. The entire loan term cannot exceed twelve years. Our student loan options conveniently have no prepayment penalty.

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.

These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. SoundView Financial Credit Union is not the creditor for these loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.

Smart Option Student Loan and graduate loan products: These loans are for students at participating degreegranting schools. Smart Option Student Loan information is for undergraduates only. Graduate Certificate/Continuing Education coursework is not eligible for MBA, Medical, Dental, and Law School Loans. Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must reside in the U.S., attend a participating school in the U.S., apply with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident) and provide an unexpired government-issued photo ID to verify their identity. Applications are subject to a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.

Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined in your promissory note—first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.
