Repayment Options

More Options. Better Fit.

The sooner you start making payments on your undergraduate loan, and the more you pay per month, the more you’ll save in the long run. But maybe that doesn’t work for you. We don’t believe in “one size fits all”. Check out our flexible student loan repayment options to see what’s best for you.

Unlike most private student loan lenders who set the loan term for you, we let you decide how quickly you pay back your loan – just remember, the sooner you repay it, the more money you save.

Full Principal & Interest Payment
Highest In-School Payment
Lowest Overall Cost

Start repaying your principal and interest right away to save the most.

Interest Only Payment
Moderate In-School Payment

Pay the interest charges each month as you go during school.

Flat Payment
Lowest In-School Payment

Make $25 payments each month3 during school to reduce your accrued interest.

Deferred Payment
No In-School Payment
Highest Overall Cost

No in-school payments required, but you’ll pay more in interest over the life of your loan.

Flexible Terms

You pick how many years you take to pay back your undergraduate loan based on what works for your life and your budget.

Securing a student loan from College Ave was wonderfully quick and easy. We had tried two other lenders and gave up because the process was so slow and cumbersome. With College Ave everything was done efficiently and completed in about a day. They also provide clear and transparent access to documents and the terms of the agreements. I was thoroughly impressed. Highly recommend
