Student Loans

Investing in education is always a smart idea

While it makes best financial sense to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for higher education, sometimes a family needs extra help.

If you need assistance making higher education happen at a degree-granting institution for yourself or a child, consider student loans by Sallie Mae®.

These flexible loans are designed to meet your needs:

  • Competitive variable and fixed interest rates
  • No origination fee or prepayment penalty1
  • Multiple repayment options

Borrow responsibly
We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.

These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. SAFE Credit Union is not the creditor for these loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.
