  1. APR = Annual Percentage Rate

  2. Your interest rate is variable and will change based on changes in an index chosen by Emory Alliance Credit Union. The index is Prime, as published in The Wall Street Journal (“Index”). If the Index becomes unavailable during the term of this account, the credit union may substitute a new index after notice to you. The interest rate will be adjusted quarterly, based on a historical index chosen by the credit union. This quarterly adjustment will occur upon no less than forty-five (45) days written notice to you. Any increase in the index rate will increase the APR and the amount of your monthly payment.

  3. As of January 1st, 2018, the Prime rate used will be 4.25%. The margin for the education line of credit is currently 3.50% or 3.25% depending on the borrower/co-borrower's credit score at the time of application. This margin is added to the index rate to determine the interest rate. There is a 'floor' rate for the education line of credit; meaning that your interest rate will never fall below the stated floor rate as disclosed upon approval. The 'floor' rate APR for the private education line of credit is currently 6.25%.

  4. Once your line of credit is disbursed, the current Index margin is used for the purpose of assessing and tracking accruing interest. Please note that the interest rate, and any subsequent rate change, applies to the entire balance on the line of credit.

  5. All loans subject to approval and restrictions may apply. Emory Alliance Credit Union reserves the right to change rates for new applications at any time and without notice.
