Borrow responsibly

We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for
college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student
expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.

These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. Florida Credit Union is not the creditor for these
loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.
