Student Loans

Pursuing a college education is a great investment in your future. The time, money and effort you spend on your education will provide you with opportunities for expanded career choices and greater earning potential.

Although financing your education may seem overwhelming at times, many types of financial aid are available. Work with your college or university’s financial aid office to explore and exhaust all sources of student financial aid.  If you find you need supplemental private student loan funds, Premier Credit Union can help.

Partnership Loan

Premier Credit Union works with Iowa Student Loan to offer supplemental private student loans to help you pay for college.

The Partnership Advance Education Loan (Partnership Loan):

  • Provides terms and conditions upfront, so you know what you’re getting before you apply.
  • Features variable and fixed interest rates.
  • Lets you begin making principal and interest payments, make interest-only payments or defer payments while you attend school.
  • Offers benefits such as interest rate reduction and cosigner release.

Compare rates, fees, terms and other loan information.

Remember, accepting a private loan before using other types of available aid may decrease your eligibility for federal, state and institutional aid.

Additional College Planning Assistance

The first step in applying for financial aid, which includes federal student loans, is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The FAFSA is a free from provided by the U.S. Department of Education that may be completed without professional assistance via paper application or online at www.fafsa.gov.  In your award letter from your college, the financial aid office will inform you of your eligibility for federal student loans.

If you are looking for information on planning for, paying for and succeeding in college, Premier Credit Union recommends the Iowa College Access Network® (ICAN). ICAN offers free services, including assistance with completing the FAFSA, to students and their families. Visit www.ICANsucceed.org or call (877) CPC-Iowa for more information about ICAN.
