PCC Student Loan Benefits

There are several reasons why PCC students may consider getting Sallie Mae student loans for their undergraduate and graduate degrees:

1. Flexibility: Sallie Mae offers a variety of loan options to meet the needs and budgets of different students. They provide competitive interest rates and repayment terms that can be customized according to the borrower's preferences.

2. Financial Assistance: Not all students are eligible for grants or scholarships, and federal student aid may not cover the entire cost of education. Sallie Mae student loans can help bridge the financial gap and provide the necessary funds to cover tuition fees, textbooks, and other educational expenses.

3. Easy Application Process: Sallie Mae offers a user-friendly online application process, allowing students to easily apply for loans from the comfort of their homes. This simplifies the borrowing process and saves time for busy students.

4. Co-signer Release Option: Sallie Mae provides an option to release the co-signer from the loan responsibility after a certain period of consistent, on-time payments. This can be beneficial for students who initially needed a co-signer but want to establish independent credit in the future.

5. PCC Cooperation: Portland Community College is likely to have an established relationship with Sallie Mae, making it easier for students to access information and resources about these loans specifically tailored to PCC students.

However, it is crucial for PCC students to carefully evaluate their financial situation before taking out any loans. They should consider the long-term financial implications of borrowing, including interest rates, repayment terms, and their ability to repay the loan after graduation. Exploring other sources of financial aid, such as scholarships or part-time jobs, may also be beneficial before considering taking on education loans.

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. Uloop Inc. is not the creditor for these loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.
