Do I need to be a member of Catholic Federal to take advantage of this loan?
Yes. If you are not a member already we would be happy to sign you up. You can then benefit from all of our great rates on our loans and deposits.
Are interest rates fixed or variable?
Tuition loans have a fixed rate.
Why do you offer a fixed rate?
Fixed rates mean predictable monthly payments that won’t rise unexpectedly due to interest rate fluctuations.
The school accepts credit card payments. Why would I want to choose the tuition loan instead?
Credit card interest rates are often variable. They are also generally higher meaning that you will pay more in interest. Some families appreciate the structure of a fixed monthly payment. With a payment plan from CFCU, you keep your credit card purchasing power available for other purchases.
Is there a down payment?
There is no down payment. You simply make your monthly payments.
Why are terms limited to 12 months?
The Tuition Loan is designed to offer flexible yet sensible terms.
