INTRODUCING PRIVATE STUDENT LOAN PROGRAM
Paying for College Just Got Easier

Recognizing the need for higher education financing for its members, Traverse Catholic Federal Credit Union now offers a private student loan and private student loan consolidation through cuStudentLoans, a credit union managed network.

With college enrollment at an all-time high, paired with the escalating cost of tuition, cuStudentLoans provides students and families with a complimentary product to assist them with funding higher education when federal options are exhausted. The cuScholar Private Student Loan can help pay for all qualified education expenses, including tuition, room and board, books, computers, even past due tuition bills. This private student loan option also includes a unique financial literacy component that helps students learn responsible repayment habits and build their credit scores while they are still in school.

For recent college graduates currently faced with high interest private student loan debt, Traverse Catholic Federal Credit Union offers a consolidation and refinancing solution. The cuGrad Private Student Loan Consolidation combines loans from multiple lenders into one easy payment to reduce the chance of a missed or late payment. This refinancing option can also potentially save thousands of dollars in student loan payments every year, allowing borrowers to put the extra money towards paying off their debt faster, or towards a major purchase such as a car or home.

TCFCU is pleased to introduce affordable private student loan programs for both students enrolled in school and young graduates just exiting from school. Education financing solutions allow students and graduates to focus on what’s important rather than how they are going to pay for college.

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. Traverse Catholic FCU 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 degree-granting 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.

1 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.
