MERITIZE STUDENT LOAN

We’re excited to announce our new partnership with education lender Meritize!

Meritize offers student loans that provide better rates using students’ academic data to improve their credit evaluation. With a Meritize loan, you can improve your loan terms by sharing your academic profile. Providing your transcript – whether high school, partial or full college or previous skills-based school experience – lets Meritize use your learning history to enhance your credit evaluation and improve your loan options. A cosigner is required and will improve your loan rates.

With a Meritize loan you can

  • Use your transcript to enhance your credit and improve your loan options
  • Fund the full cost of tuition on your own merit
  • Choose affordable fixed or variable rates
  • Select the repayment option that works best for you while you attend school – making full payments or making interest-only payments
  • Repay your loan over 3, 5, or 10 years
  • Avoid prepayment penalty fees if you choose to pay your loan off early
  • Get access to free Meritize Career Success Services for job and career support

DELTA STUDENT LOAN

Delta does not provide grants or scholarships. The company provides loans that should be considered seriously and which must be paid back. A co-signer is required on all private student loans offered by Delta and, in the event that the student defaults on loan payments, the co-signer will also assume full responsibility for payment of such loans. You should carefully evaluate your own financial situation and consider all other options, such as savings or family support, before applying to Delta for a private student loan or accepting any such loans.
