Apply Now


Pay for your graduate school studies with a private student loan.

  • Borrow up to $20,000 per school year for a lifetime maximum of $75,000.
  • Choose a fixed rate to keep your rate the same or a variable rate to get a lower initial rate.
  • Get a 0.25% rate reduction when you sign up for automatic payments.1
  • No hidden fees, no annual fees and no prepayment penalties.

Repay your way:

  • Defer payments for up to 5 years, as long as you are enrolled in school at least half-time.
  • Enjoy a 6-month grace period after graduating or dropping below half-time status before repayments begin.
  • Option to make interest-only payments during the first 2 years of repayment.
  • Take up to 15 years to repay.

Do you need a cosigner?

If you're just starting out and have limited income or credit history, you may need a trusted friend or family member to cosign for your student loan. A cosigner guarantees they will pay back your loan if you cannot do so. We will tell you during the application process if you need a cosigner. A cosigner release is available upon request after you've made 36 consecutive, on-time payments.2
