Pick the “Smart Option”

Education is important. It is a founding principal of our credit union. We can help you pay for college expenses not covered by scholarships and federal loans.

Make sure you see what’s available through Federal and State aid first. Then also check local organizations for scholarship opportunities. Once you’ve determined what you still need, we can help with the Smart Option Student Loan® for First Source by Sallie Mae® available to borrowers attending degree-granting institutions.

Pay for college the smart way with three great repayment options and competitive interest rates.

  • Multiple in-school repayment options plus a choice of competitive fixed and variable interest rates provides even more flexibility
  • No origination fees and no prepayment penalty
  • Rewards and interest rate reductions available
  • Rates that reward creditworthy borrowers
  • Applying with a creditworthy cosigner may help you qualify and/or receive a lower rate
  • 100% US-based Student Loan Specialists
