We have partnered with Meritize to provide our students with financing options to fund your education. With a Meritize Loan, you can get credit for your merit and potentially improve your loan options by sharing your academic history, military background, or work experience. If approved, full deferment during school is available for certain products.

You are more than your credit score. That’s why Meritize Loans* looks beyond FICO and uses your previous academic or military experience to enhance your credit evaluation and potentially improve your loan options.
Academic History: Share what you’ve learned in school by providing your transcripts or HSE scores
Military Background: Upload your military documents, such as your DD214, if you are a veteran
