Interest Rates for Loans Made By College Foundation, Inc.

FOR LOANS DISBURSED ON OR AFTER JULY 1, 2008 through JUNE 30, 2010:

   

As of July 1, 2010, the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) is the sole source for new federal education loans; therefore, College Foundation, Inc. (CFI) cannot assist you with a new Federal Stafford, PLUS or Consolidation Loan. We are glad to continue providing you personal service on previous loans you have through us. Go to My Loan Status for details on your existing loans.

See rates for existing Stafford, SLS, PLUS, Consolidation and EXTRA Education Loans below.

"Date Made" is the date the lender disbursed the first (or only) installment of loan proceeds by check or EFT.
