Through a partnership with UW Credit Union, we now offer student loans at competitive rates and with the personalized service credit unions are known for.

We offer:

  • Competitive rates
  • 0.25% interest rate reduction for automatic payments
  • Personalized, friendly service
  • Debt protection: loan forgiveness up to $50k if borrower passes away
  • Cosigner release after first 36 payments are made on-time and consecutively
  • If applying for a new student loan, make sure you have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) first.

Membership Requirement

As credit unions, UW Credit Union and Aurora Credit Union have membership requirements. This requires opening a $5 membership savings account with UW Credit Union, which must remain open until your student loan is paid in full. No other products are required, so you can keep your existing accounts with Aurora Credit Union and continue your financial relationship with them.
