1 Interest will continue to accrue during the payment deferral period and will be capitalized when the loan exits deferral. If you can make interest payments during the payment deferral period, your monthly payment may remain at your current payment amount. If you cannot make interest only payments during the deferral period, your payments may increase.
2 Financing is subject to BECU membership, credit approval, and other underwriting criteria; not every applicant will qualify. Rates are based on an evaluation of credit history and other factors specific to your loan (such as loan term and loan amount) and may be higher than the lowest rates advertised. Your final APR may differ from your loan interest rate due to additional fees that may apply. Loan program including rates, terms, and conditions are subject to change without notice. The payment example illustrates the estimated annual percentage rate (APR) and monthly payment for a $10,000 loan amount with various terms. If you selected a 10-year term, you would make 120 monthly payments of $106.02 to $125.27—depending on your APR.
3 All rates include the auto-pay discount of 0.25%. If the automatic payment is canceled any time after enrollment, the rate reduction will discontinue. This rate reduction may be suspended during any period of forbearance or deferment.
4 Primary borrower may apply to remove cosigner after 24 on-time payments of principle and interest during the repayment period, subject to credit approval and other underwriting criteria.
