EECU now works with Higher Education Servicing Corp to provide student loans
Education is more important than ever, and so is making smart financial decisions when it comes to paying for it. In order to help our young members reach their educational goals, EECU has partnered with Higher Education Servicing Corp to offer the Texas Extra Credit Education Loan. Texas Extra Credit is a private student loan developed specifically to help Texas residents pay for college when scholarships, grants and federal aid just aren’t enough to cover the full cost of attendance.
The program comes with affordable features:
- Competitive interest rates
- Zero origination or disbursement fees
- 0.25% rate discount for graduating
- 0.25% rate discount for auto-payments
- Multiple repayment terms and options
While these loans are a great deal, we highly recommend students apply for and take advantage of all federal student aid programs through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to applying for a private student loan. If you decide to apply for a private loan it is best to apply with a creditworthy cosigner as most student applicants do not meet the credit criteria. Having a cosigner may also help secure a lower interest rate.
