Application Process: When you are applying for a PNC Solution Loan, you will be transferred to the website of one of our service providers. A list of information required to successfully complete your application will be provided during the application process. Borrowers and co-signers will need to provide personal information including a driver’s license or state ID, employment and income information.

Loan Limits: Annual loan maximum: $15,000. Maximum aggregate educational debt (including both federal and private student loans): $225,000.
Fixed Annual Percentage Rates (APRs): Fixed rates are based on the creditworthiness of the borrower and co-signer, if any. Loan Payment Example: Estimated monthly payment per $15,000 borrowed at a fixed rate range of 4.69% APR to 10.69% APR for 10 years means you would make 120 payments which may range from $157.14 to $204.90. For the fixed rate loan, the monthly payment will remain fixed for the term of the loan.
Variable Annual Percentage Rates (APRs): Variable rates are based on the Prime Rate index plus a margin depending on the creditworthiness of the borrower and co-signer, 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 3.25%. If the index increases or decreases, your rate will increase or decrease accordingly. The rate will not exceed 18%. Loan Payment Example: Estimated monthly payment per $15,000 borrowed at variable rate range of 2.46% APR to 8.46% APR for 10 years means you would make 120 payments which may range from $141.27 to $186.30. For the variable rate loan, the monthly payment may increase or decrease if the interest rate increases or decreases.
APRs displayed are effective as of 6/10/2021 and include the 0.50% interest rate discount for automatic payments. The range of rates displayed are for immediate repayment option.

For additional rate and loan cost information view loan Application and Solicitation Disclosures.
Automatic Payment Discount: During repayment, an interest rate discount of 0.50% is available for automatic payments. Borrower must be making scheduled payments that include both principal and interest. Interest only payments do not qualify for the 0.50% interest rate discount. Automatic payment can be established through the loan servicer American Education Services (AES). Advertised rates include the 0.50% automatic payment interest rate discount. The rate discount will be applied at the time automatic payment is established. If automatic payment is not established, the available rates will be 0.50% higher than the advertised rates. If automatic payment is established and discontinued at any time during repayment, the borrower will no longer receive an automatic payment discount and the rate will increase by 0.50%. Discount may also be suspended during periods of forbearance or deferment. Payments may be made from a checking or savings account. PNC limits the number of transfers that may be made from a savings or money market account. Please see your account agreement for more information.
Co-Signer Release: A request to release a co-signer requires that, as of the date of the request, you have made at least forty-eight (48) consecutive timely payments of principal and interest with no periods of forbearance or deferment within the forty-eight (48) month timeframe. “Timely payment” means each payment is made no later than the 15th day after the scheduled due date of the payment. “Consecutive payment” means the minimum monthly payment must be made for the most recent forty-eight (48) months straight without any interruption. To qualify for a co-signer release, the borrower must submit a request, meet the consecutive, timely payment requirements, provide proof of income and pass a credit check.
Repayment Options: Three repayment options are available - Immediate repayment, interest only payments while in school and full deferment of principal & interest. Interest will continue to accrue during periods of deferment. You will receive quarterly interest statements during the deferment period. Paying the interest as it accrues each quarter will save you money over the repayment term of the loan because any accrued interest that you do not pay will be added to the principal balance at the end of the deferment.
Please Note: PNC reserves the right to discontinue any or all terms of this program at any time without notice. Loans may be sold to other financial organizations; however, the interest rate and term of the loan will not change if a loan is sold.
You are encouraged to explore all scholarship, grant and federal borrowing options before applying for a private loan.
