MEFA Student Loan Disclosures


MEFA Student Loan Disclosure


These rates are expressed as APR. The Fixed interest rate will not change during the term. To be eligible for a MEFA Undergraduate Loan, the student must:


  1. Be enrolled at least half time in an accredited degree-granting undergraduate program at an eligible non-profit college or university in the United States. If the student is currently enrolled for the current academic year, a student may:
  • Borrow a MEFA Loan for the summer session
  • Borrow a MEFA Loan to cover a past due balance within the current academic year
  1. Maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by the college or university


All borrowers must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States. MEFA’s private student loans are subject to credit qualification, completion of a loan agreement, self-certification form, school certification of cost of attendance minus estimated financial aid, and student’s enrollment at a MEFA’s participating school.
