About Us

A group of leading credit unions saw a need in the marketplace for a better private student loan – one that was actually in the student’s best interest and honored the credit union philosophy of putting members first. That common ground gave rise to Credit Union Student Choice – a company that serves credit unions so they can offer fair-value student lending solutions and straight-forward advice to students and members. By working together, credit unions across the country are providing students and families with the funding they need.

What Is A Credit Union?

Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members rather than maximize corporate profits. Like banks, credit unions provide a variety of financial services, but as member-owned cooperatives, they focus on providing a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates while returning income to their members in the form of dividends.

Why Choose A Credit Union?

Credit unions operate to serve their members and communities. One way they do that is by promoting thrift and offering competitive rates with a focus on the best interest of the borrower – in this case students. When you choose your credit union to pay for college, you’ll benefit from great rates, low fees, convenient repayment terms, and most importantly, a life-long relationship with a lender you can trust.
