Interra Offers Student Loans and Consolidations

Private Student Loans

College costs aren’t going down. When students and their parents combine personal savings, scholarships, government student loans and other options, those resources may not cover the costs needed to pay for an education. Interra Credit Union can help fill funding gaps that federal aid and other resources may leave behind with a private student loan program.

Interra’s loans have no origination fees, low rates and flexible repayment options. It’s important to first determine eligibility for scholarships and grants and apply for as many as you can. Then, plan to take the maximum amount of federal loans you are awarded before applying for a private student loan. Be sure you read the fine print and compare fees, terms and repayment options (not just rates) when looking for a private student loan, as it will need to be repaid once you graduate.

To learn more about the financial aid process and how to choose student loans, visit, or contact Interra directly. You can also apply by phone, 24/7, at 866.430.0303.

Consolidation Loans

Interra’s consolidation program can help you take control of your student loans. It allows borrowers to refinance and consolidate private and federal student loans, including PLUS loans.1

For more information, just go to, click on FIND A LOAN and choose STUDENT LOAN REFINANCE. You may also call or visit any Interra office.

1Subject to credit qualification and additional criteria, including graduating from an approved school. IMPORTANT NOTICE: By refinancing federal student loans, you may lose certain borrower benefits from your original loans. These may include interest rate discounts, principal rebates, or some cancellation benefits that can significantly reduce the cost of repaying your loans. Please review an important disclosure at http://interracu. for more information.
