Scholarships aren't the only way BCU is committed to helping our members pursue educational opportunities. A student loan from the Credit Union can fill in gaps not covered by other forms of financial assistance. With low rates, flexible repayment terms, and no origination fee or pre-payment penalties, private student loans are one more example of how Here Today For Your Tomorrow.
