We offer four pathways to approval for our loans
1. A student with a credit score of 720 or higher may qualify for the loan.
2. A student may qualify for the loan if they have a credit score between 680 and 719 and meet an expected Debt-to-Income (current debt payments divided by current income) requirement of 45%. For this criterion, the underwriting will consider future income by estimating future earnings based on the average salary of a Certified Flight Instructor at Blue Line Aviation.
At this time, that would mean the student would need to have monthly debt payments of $930
or less. These will be verified through the credit report.
3. A student may qualify for the loan if they have a credit score between 680 and 719 and use a co-signer to meet the Debt-to-Income (current debt payments divided by current income) requirement of 45%. The co-signer will need to show adequate income that remains at or below the 45% Debt-to-Income with their existing debts and the expected loan payments on the new loan.
4. A student may qualify for the loan if they have a credit score between 620 and 679 or no credit score and use a co-signer if the co-signer has a credit score of 680 or greater and meets the Debt-to-Income (current debt payments divided by current income) requirement of 45%. The co-signer will need to show adequate income that remains at or below the 45% Debt-to-Income with their existing debts and the expected loan payments on the new loan.
Yes, it is a hard hit.
A hard hit, or a "hard pull," occurs when you apply for a new line of credit, such as a credit card or loan. It means that a creditor has requested to look at your credit file to determine how much risk you pose as a borrower. Hard inquiries show up on your credit report and can affect your credit score.
It is not required to have a co-borrower. Refer to the loan underwriting criteria for details.
No payments due until 1 year after graduation (depending on which loan product you use). 1 year after graduation, your payments for principal and interest will begin.
An origination fee of 5% is required. (This fee can be financed into the loan)
Interest rate: 15.5% fixed for the life of the loan
Loan repayment: 20 years
Payment terms: Loan payments can be deferred for the first 12 months to allow the student to finish school and start working as a certified flight instructor (CFI).
*Terms may be subject to rules and limitations depending on students' circumstances
