3Calculations are estimates only. Calculations assume a parent borrower takes out a loan for $14,750 (before fees), has one loan disbursement, and uses a 10-year standard repayment plan. Calculations are based on Direct PLUS Loan information available on https://studentaid.ed.gov including a 6.31% interest rate and 4.272% loan fee, vs. a College Ave Student Loans Parent Loan with a 6.75% interest rate and no loan fee. Federal loans carry special benefits, such as public service forgiveness, that are not available with private loans. According to the College Board, the average amount borrowed by parents through the Parent PLUS program in 2014-15 was $14,750.
4The 0.25% auto-pay interest rate reduction applies as long as a valid bank account is designated for required monthly payments. Variable rates may increase after consummation.
5You can elect a set monthly payment amount of “Interest Plus” in increments of $20. If you select a variable rate loan, note that we require you to pay at least the monthly interest charges during the in-school period, so your minimum monthly payment due will be the “Interest Plus” monthly payment amount that you selected or the interest due, whichever is greater. Loans will never have a full principal and interest monthly payment of less than $50.
