Credit Union Student Choice private loan solution
A Better Way to Pay for College

We know that federal student aid isnít always enough, especially if you attend a private college or university. Thatís why Christian Community Credit Union now offers the Credit Union Student Choice alternative student loan product to help fill your funding gaps.

As a valuable member, you already know that we operate for just one reason Ė to serve you. That means we can offer low loan rates and charge zero in origination fees. Unlike other student lenders, we are focused on finding ways to save you money. This means you get a better deal on student loans and a full range of other financial services.
 
Choosing a lender may seem like a pretty insignificant decision, but a student loan is a long-term relationship and costs (particularly origination costs) vary widely. It is important to choose a lender carefully and read the fine print. By choosing Christian Community Credit Union, you could save hundreds of dollars over the life of your loan.

With the recently enacted Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010 (H.R. 4872), the Federal Family Educational Loan (FFEL) Program has been eliminated. Private lenders, like Christian Community Credit Union no longer have a role in origination or funding Federal Stafford, PLUS or Consolidation loans. Beginning July 1, 2010 all new federal student loans will be issued via the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program. Contact your schoolís financial aid office for more information.
