Important! Change to the Federal Student Lending Process:With the recently enacted Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010, the Federal Family Educational Loan (FFEL) Program has been eliminated. Private lenders such as THFCU, no longer have a role in originating or funding federal Stafford, PLUS or Consolidation Loans.
Federal Direct Student LoansAll new federal student loans will be issued via the William D. Ford Direct Loan Program. The lender for federal loans will be the U.S. Department of Education rather than Your Credit Union or other financial institutions.
Consolidations LoansYou may have the opportunity to consolidate your existing loans through the Federal Direct Loan Consolidation Loan Program. Visit the Department of Education Consolidation Loan website
Direct Lending Borrowing AidsAlthough THFCU will no longer be funding federal student loans, we would like to continue to assist you in whatever way we can. See one of our staff for more information on what financial aids we offer to students.
