Important Information About Rates and Fees

Fixed Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) are based on the creditworthiness of the borrower and cosigner, if any. For the fixed rate loan, the monthly payment will remain fixed for the term of the loan. Variable Annual Percentage Rates (APRs) are based on the Prime Rate index plus a margin depending on the creditworthiness of the borrower and cosigner, if any. The Prime index, adjusted monthly, is equal to the Prime Rate as published in the “Money Rates” section of The Wall Street Journal ‘(Eastern Edition)’ on the first business day of the immediately preceding calendar month. The Prime index is currently 4.75%. If the index increases or decreases, your rate will increase or decrease accordingly. The rate will not exceed 18%.
