Iowa Student Loan

Origination Fees Eliminated

Students and families taking out a Partnership Advance Education Loan® or College Family Loan® no longer pay an origination fee. This change means that students and families will receive all the funds they borrow to help with college costs and will not need to borrow more to cover any fees.

Lower than PLUS Rates

In addition, this change means that the highest fixed annual percentage rate (APR) for both the Partnership Loan and College Family Loan and for any in-school payment option is 6.85%. This APR is lower than the APR we calculate for the Federal Direct PLUS Loan for the 2017–2018 academic year. We encourage students and families to remember that loan costs are only one factor they should consider when comparing the PLUS Loan to other loans, and we continue to provide PLUS Loan comparison charts online for both our supplemental loan options.
