  • (2) Interest rates are fixed and never vary.
  • (3) Program completion dates are determined by the school, and full repayment begins 2 months after that date.
  • (4) Annual Percentage Rate (APR): Finance charge and monthly payments are estimated based upon borrowing $10,000, a 4.0% origination fee, paying interest on the loan for 4 months while enrolled in the program and for a two-month grace period, then the 36-month principal and interest period.
