More funding options to pay for school.

The world is filled with opportunities. And now it’s your turn to take a chance on the future. So, let’s work together to prepare your finances for school. Through our partnership with CU Student Choice, simple financing options are available. If you’re not sure where you’re attending yet, you can still prepare and apply for a private education line of credit. Then, request the exact amount of funding that you’ll need later. That’s the power of planning ahead.
