The UW Credit Union Advantage

We’ve been helping students pay for school ever since we were founded at UW-Madison in 1931. But our support for you doesn’t end once you walk across the stage to get your diploma.

We’re here for you at every life stage, from your first day in college through your retirement years—and everything in between.

As a not-for-profit, people-first financial institution, we have your best interests at heart. We always recommend that you consider your federal loan options first—before applying for a private student loan. If federal aid is insufficient, our student loans can bridge the gap.

Our affordable, flexible private student loans offer these great perks:

  • No fees or prepayment penalty
  • .25% interest rate reduction with automatic payments during repayment1
  • Cosigner release option after the first 36 consecutive, on-time payments2
  • Access to student loan experts to help you through the process
