Meritize Financial looks beyond traditional credit scores and instead considers academic data to provide students who might not otherwise qualify for a loan, with the ability to apply for and secure a student loan.
Credit approvals for loans chiefly rely on credit scores and, for students, the availability of a co-signer. Often, students just have not had the time to establish a credit history, making loan acquisition sometimes difficult. Meritize believes good students make good borrowers and loan recipients and provides them with ways to secure loans for their education. Even if your academic record isn’t perfect, Meritize will work with you to customize a loan that meets your specific needs.
A Meritize loan has some great benefits:
Uses Academic Data for Better Loan Options
Offers Expedited Approval Process
Can be Repaid Over 5 Years
Has No Prepayment Penalty
Can Cover Full Cost of Tuition
Provides Full In-School Deferment Option
Offers a 90-day Grace Period
