Private Student Loans
Clear guidance and flexible college funding solutions
It's an uncertain world. Many families are facing difficult decisions when it comes to paying for a college education. MIT Federal Credit Union provides guidance and flexible solutions. A certified private student loan from MIT FCU is a line of credit for undergraduate education. The convenience of a line of credit allows you to apply once, then make multiple draws throughout your college career. An annual credit review is performed each May in order to authorize future draw requests.
