Graduate Line of Credit

Focus on what is really important and let us handle the rest!

Our Student Choice private loan solution is designed to fill the funding gaps that may exist after all lower-cost sources of aid (including scholarships, grants, and federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans) have been exhausted. And since these loans are being offered through Duke Credit Union, you know you're getting a great deal from a not-for-profit lender you can trust.

Even if the ongoing pandemic is leaving you unsure about the college you'll be attending or the exact amount of funding you may need, we've got you covered! You can still establish a line of credit to secure your funding, and then come back later this summer once you've finalized your plans in order to request the exact funds you need and/or select your school. We're here for you.

Borrow up to $75,000

 

 

Pro: Potentially lower starting interest rates could result in lower monthly payments.

 

Consider This: Your interest rate can rise and fall over the life of your line of credit so your monthly payment and total interest cost may vary.
