New Loan and Lower Rates Provide Options for Families

Students and families in need of supplemental funds to pay for college costs can turn to our two private loan options: the Partnership Advance Education Loan® for students and the new College Family LoanSM for those who want to borrow on behalf of a student.

As an Iowa nonprofit charged with helping students and families obtain the resources necessary to succeed in postsecondary education, we are always working to provide competitive options to help students and families cover the costs of college. That is why we lowered most of the Partnership Loan rates in February and introduced the new College Family Loan in March. Both loan programs:

  • Allow applicants to choose between three in-school repayment options.
  • Inform applicants who qualify for a loan with a higher annual percentage rate than what we calculate for a PLUS Loan that they may want to consider the PLUS Loan or other options, such as a different in-school payment option.

Attend Our Business Solutions Session at IASFAA

Gary Adams and Matt Brown have been staying up late every Friday night to catch Thank-You Notes on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon," and now they are ready to show off what they learned. Join the Iowa Student Loan comedy duo on April 6 at the Spring 2017 Iowa Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators Conference. Like Fallon, Adams and Brown will showcase programs, events and people they are grateful for with the perfect mix of humor and helpful information.

Assistance Available for Incoming Freshmen

Representatives from Iowa Student Loan are hosting several more College Financial Aid Award Letter Nights through April 13 to help students and families estimate the total costs of college over four years. Using the students' award letters, outside scholarship information and other general financial details, we will assist students and their families in using our free College Funding Forecaster tool during a personal and private session. No personal or financial information will be retained, and attendees will not hear a sales pitch or need to make any purchase. More information about these evenings as well as upcoming dates and locations can be found online.

Scholarship Open for Non-Iowa Residents

If you're working with high school students who live in Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota or Wisconsin and who plan to attend college in Iowa this fall, be sure to tell them about the Come 2 Iowa Senior Scholarship. Students must register and complete the three required elements — Student Loan Game PlanSM, ROCI Reality Check and a related assessment — by 4 p.m. on Friday, May 12 to be eligible for one of five $1,000 scholarships. The two tools will help registered students learn more about college financing and how to reduce expenses and limit borrowing for college.
