Student Loans

Are you stressed because the grants, scholarships and federal student loans you received didn't cover your cost of education?  You're not alone!  This happens to many students each year, but now you have the edge, the Academic Edge!®

Fill the gap in your educational expenses - Loans are available from $1,000 up to the total of qualified educational expenses as certified by the school, less other aid awarded.  Your school will certify your loan and the funds will be sent directly to them so you have one less thing to worry about.

No Payments required while in school - It is important to remember, however, that making payments while in school will lower the overall cost of the loan.

For questions for a student loan secured through Chicago Municipal Employees Credit Union, contact our chosen servicer, Academic Edge at 1-800-521-7821, email AcademicEdge@slfc.com or click the image on the right.
