What is a credit union?

Like banks, credit unions provide a variety of financial services. As member-owned cooperatives, they focus on providing a safe place to save and borrow at reasonable rates while returning income to their members in the form of dividends.

Why choose a credit union?

Credit unions are not-for-profit organizations that exist to serve their members rather than maximize corporate profits. They do this by offering competitive rates and lower fees for the borrower. When you choose BCU to help you pay for college, you'll enjoy great rates, low fees, convenient repayment terms, and a life-long relationship with a lender you can trust.

Who is Credit Union Student Choice?

A group of leading credit unions saw a need in the marketplace for a better private student loan. A student loan option that was actually in the student’s best interest and honored the credit union philosophy of putting members first. That common ground gave rise to Credit Union Student Choice, a company that serves credit unions in offering fair-value student lending solutions and straight-forward advice to members and students. By working together, credit unions across the country are providing students and families with:

  • Straightforward terms
  • Lower rates
  • No origination fees
  • Flexible repayment options
