Repayment Benefits
Reset Loan borrowers can earn a 0.25% interest rate reduction^{1} when they sign up to have principal and interest payments automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account using our autodebit program.
Death or Disability: In the unfortunate event of a borrower's death or qualifying total and permanent disability, Iowa Student Loan will forgive the loan and not require cosigner(s) or the borrower's estate to satisfy the loan obligation.
In addition, if a cosigner suffers a qualifying total and permanent disability, Iowa Student Loan will release the cosigner from his or her obligation. In the event of a cosigner's death or qualifying total and permanent disability, the borrower will not be required to find a new cosigner for an existing loan. Please contact us for details.
Please consult a tax professional or the IRS for information about possible tax consequences of loan forgiveness.
^{1} The 0.25% interest rate reduction will apply to loans once payments begin to be automatically deducted. The reduction will remain in effect as long as automatic payments continue without interruption during the repayment period. The 0.25% interest rate reduction will not lower the monthly payment amount but will instead reduce the interest amount that accrues. The interest rate reduction will be suspended during approved deferment(s) or forbearance(s) or if automatic payments are rejected due to insufficient funds.
Eligibility and Underwriting Criteria
The Reset Loan is for creditworthy borrowers (those who meet the underwriting and credit criteria). Applicants who do not meet the underwriting and credit criterial on their own may apply with one or more creditworthy cosigner(s).
Borrowers and cosigners must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. In addition, you and your cosigner(s) cannot have defaulted on any private or government student loan.
To qualify for the Reset Loan, you or your cosigner(s) must:
 Have monthly payments for approved credit (mortgages, rent, car loans, credit cards and other forms of credit) that do not exceed 40% of gross monthly income (if a mortgage or rent is not included, debttoincome ratio cannot exceed 25%). All student loan debt will be treated as though it is in repayment.
 Provide continuous employment verification covering the last two years if you or your cosigner earn a wage but do not receive a W2. (This requirement may be waived for retirees, disabled persons or those receiving a verified income.)
 Have an annual income of at least $25,000.
 Have a FICO score of at least 720. (The FICO score used is the TransUnion FICO Score 4, which is based on data from TransUnion and may be different from other credit scores. FICO is a registered trademark of the Fair Isaac Corporation.)
 Have no more than two accounts reporting 30day delinquencies during the previous two years.
 Have no delinquencies of 60 days or more during the previous two years.
 Have no chargeoffs, repossessions, collection accounts, judgments, foreclosures, garnishments by credit providers or tax liens.
 Have no previous bankruptcies.
Please note that the list of criteria above may not be exhaustive. Iowa Student Loan may require you or your cosigner(s) to meet additional criteria in order to qualify for a loan. Iowa Student Loan reserves the right to change the list of criteria in any way from time to time.
Refinance Estimator
This refinance estimator figures the estimated monthly payment based on a fixed interest rate and a standard repayment plan, meaning that the repayment amount is the same each month for the life of the loan as long as payments are made on the due date in full each month.
