Student loans

Think offers higher education loans through iHelp.

These student loans are available to help pay education expenses after federal student loans, scholarships and grants have been awarded.

Features & benefits:

  • No loan origination, application, or prepayment fees.
  • No payments are required while the student is in school.
  • Loans are available for the total of education expenses as certified by the school, less other aid awarded.
  • An interest rate discount may be available if payments are made with automatic debit.
  • Interest that accrues while the student is in school will be added to the loan only once, when the loan enters repayment.
  • Cosigners generally help a student qualify for a loan and possibly a lower interest rate. Most students apply with a credit worthy cosigner.
