Pay for College


Need help paying for school? Apply for a student loan from LendKey.

The cost of tuition and fees at public universities and private colleges has risen by an average of 3.1% and 2.3% per year over the last decade, respectively# – and there are few signs of it slowing down.

If you or your child needs more financial assistance to afford a college education, consider a private student loan from our partner, LendKey* . You can spend the money you borrow on tuition, room and board, books and other qualified educational expenses like a computer.
