Student Aid

As a reminder, universities also have their own scholarships, grants and work study programs awarded via the information received through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). To explore what the university has to offer you may want to ensure your student meets with a Financial Aid Counselor at the universities he/she is interested in attending.

Information on Federal Student and Parent Plus loans can be found on the Federal Student Aid site. This site provides a plethora of information on student and parent plus federal student loans but can be overwhelming, however the information available here will be very helpful both now and in the future.

Student Loans

While CPFCU does not offer student loans we do have a relationship with Sallie Mae to offer this service for our members.
