Student Loan Xpress - A CIT Company

When national lender Student Loan Xpress opened its doors in 2002, we established a mission to serve all student groups – including non-traditional students. To accommodate the needs of this diverse, dynamic audience, we've developed a comprehensive suite of programs and services that are low-cost and high value, and – best of all – easy to use.

Outstanding Borrower Benefits for Federal and Private Loan Programs

With our enhanced Xtreme Rewards program, both graduate and undergraduate Stafford borrowers can save money over the life of the loan through our up-front and back-end benefits. Other savings programs include automatic principal reductions at disbursement and the benefit of receiving three months added to a student's usual grace period. In addition, borrowers can receive additional interest rate reductions and principal reduction based on positive actions like signing up for automated payments and making on-time payments.

For our graduate students, we also offer the popular Grad PLUS Loan. This new program is based on the PLUS (Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students) Loan, which is currently used by parents of undergraduate students. Now available for Graduate and Professional students through Student Loan Xpress, the Grad PLUS Loan is a cost-effective alternative to using savings, income or private loans. Its benefits include an easy online application, a low fixed interest rate, and access to a comprehensive borrower benefit program. In addition, our innovative Second Look® program is unique in the industry for helping students receive the credit counseling they need to qualify.

Need additional funding? We offer private loans at both the graduate and undergraduate level, featuring competitive rates, borrower friendly terms, and – as always – an easy, friendly application process. Our Career Xpress Loan is specialized to meet the needs of career students.

Caring Service That's Available When You Need It

Ultimately, of course, the best products in the world are no good without caring service to help make them understandable and easy to use. Our Education Finance Center provides students with direct access to a staff of experienced representatives who are well educated in the financial aid process. This team of financial aid professionals educates borrowers by answering questions about the financial aid process and particular questions covering the FAFSA, loan eligibility, federal loan features, interest rates, repayment options and benefits. As they work with Student Loan Xpress, students are urged to ask for the same specialist every time they call, so that we can continue to provide personalized service to each caller. We also provide Spanish-speaking assistance as needed.

Our Education Finance Center is open seven (7) days a week: Monday through Friday: 6:00 am (PST) to 7:00 pm (PST), and Saturday and Sunday: 8:00 am (PST) to 5:30 pm (PST).
