APR = Annual Percentage Rate. All loans subject to approval. Rates quoted are effective as of 10/03/2023 and are subject to change without notice. SchoolsFirst FCU has a loan program featuring a range of interest rates for some of its consumer loans. A rate is based on a variety of factors, including the applicant's credit rating. SchoolsFirst FCU's maximum aggregate personal loan limit is $50,000 per qualifying Member. This includes all individual and joint personal loan credit combined. 

For loans with the purpose of post-secondary education expenses, additional disclosures and completion of a self-certification form are required. The borrower must sign and complete a self-certification form before funds can be disbursed on a Special Curriculum, Higher Education, or Personal loan for the purpose of post-secondary education expenses. In addition, the borrower has a three-day rescission period. During the rescission period, the borrower can cancel the loan and the lender cannot disburse loan funds. The rescission period starts when all applicable loan documents have been signed by the borrower(s).

  1. Lowest rate reflects a 0.75% discount for payment made by automatic transfer from your SchoolsFirst FCU account. Rates range between 9.49% APR (min.) 18.00% APR (max.). Loan terms range between 4 – 60 months. Rate may vary based on term selected; payment is based on rate, term and loan amount. Minimum payment is $25. Estimated payment of $3.20 per $100 borrowed based on 9.49% APR and 36 month term.
  2. The relative benefits of a loan for debt consolidation depend on your individual circumstances.
  3. Subject to approval. Interest will continue to accrue during the skip payment period. Must have made the last 12 consecutive loan payments on time. All loan and share accounts must be in good standing. Valid on select personal loans. Program subject to change or cancellation. Limited to one skip per 12 months.
  4. Subject to eligibility. Rate may be reduced by up to 0.50% APR increments after 12 consecutive on-time payments. Maximum rate reduction will not exceed lowest APR offered at the time of funding and the maximum number of rate reductions are determined by eligibility. Monthly payment will remain the same, with additional money applied as per the Loan and Security Agreement. This may shorten the term of the loan and total interest paid over the life of the loan.
