Help your student by taking responsibility with a loan in your name
We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for
college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student
expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.
These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. Schneider Community Credit Union is not the creditor for these
loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.
Smart Option Student Loan and graduate loan products: This information is for students attending participating
degree-granting schools. Smart Option Student Loan information is for undergraduates only. Graduate
Certificate/Continuing Education coursework is not eligible for MBA, Medical, Dental, and Law School Loans.
Borrowers must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents if the school is located outside of the United States.
Non-U.S. citizen borrowers who reside in the U.S. are eligible with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S.
citizen or U.S. permanent resident) and are required to provide an unexpired government-issued photo ID to verify
identity. Applications are subject to a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other
eligibility criteria apply.
Parent Loan: This loan must be used to pay for eligible student expenses at participating degree-granting schools.
The student cannot be a borrower or cosigner and is not responsible for repaying the loan. The borrower, cosigner,
and student must be U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. If the school issues a refund directly to the student,
the borrower and cosigner (if applicable) are still responsible for repaying that amount. Applications are subject to
a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.
1 Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined
in your promissory note—first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.

Loan Related Services
New and newer used vehicles often depreciate quickly and vehicle loans are typically getting longer in terms. There may be a point where you owe more than your vehicle is worth. At that point GAP insurance is a way to protect your auto loan. Many times when a car is declared a “total loss” after being stolen or totaled in an accident or natural disaster GAP will help cancel the difference between the primary insurance settlement and what you may still owe.
Schneider Community Credit Union offers its members Payment Protection credit life and credit disability insurance through American National Insurance Co. Credit life insurance pays the outstanding balance on your loan if you die before the loan is paid off. Credit disability insurance provides funds to help you make your loan payments if you are unable to work because of an illness or accident.
Most members are eligible to apply for credit life and credit disability insurance. Coverage is available for single or joint borrowers, at affordable rates, and premiums are automatically added to your loan payment. Protect yourself and your family from the burden that could result if you die or become disabled. Payment Protection offers the peace of mind that comes from knowing your financial obligations will be met. Visit with our lending department for details on Payment Protection credit life and credit disability insurance.
Vehicle Service Contracts
In addition to offering new, used, and refinanced auto loans, we also offer Extended Vehicle Service Contracts through Vision Warranty Corporation for your auto, truck, or van. Get peace of mind and protection against expensive, unexpected automotive repair costs when you purchase an Extended Vehicle Service Contract.
Buy an Extended Vehicle Service Contract for less than the cost at most dealerships and enjoy:
- Coverage of most major components in the event of a breakdown
- No-hassle Direct Payment: no reimbursement forms
- A one-time premium that may be financed along with your vehicle
Put the brakes on expensive car repairs. A factory warranty may not be enough. Most major repairs occur after the manufacturer’s warranty expires. Consider adding an extended vehicle service contract to your loan. Coverage obtained through the Credit Union may save you money when compared to dealer plans.
