What Is Student Choice Lending?
Our Student Choice private loan solution was designed to fill the funding gaps that may exist after all lower-cost sources of aid (including scholarships, grants, and federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans) have been exhausted.
Student Choice loans are available for select undergraduate programs, graduate-level business programs, and for refinancing existing student loans.
Directions has allowed me the opportunity to attend college and realize my truest potential. I would have never been able to afford my dreams without the loan I am receiving from DCU and the help of the DCU team!
Thank you! Brittani A. Toledo, Ohio
