1  APR = Annual Percentage Rate. This loan has a variable interest rate that is based on a publicly available index, the 1-Month LIBOR, as published in The Wall Street Journal. Your rate may change each month and will be calculated by adding the 1-Month LIBOR to a margin between 2.99% and 7.19%. Rates and terms based on credit criteria and are all subject to change. The lower rate displayed in the rate range above assumes a 0.25% rate reduction upon borrower enrolling in automatic payments. For more information about the automatic payment rate reduction, see #2 below.
Assuming a $10,000 loan amount, a 2.90% APR, and the level repayment option, you would make 180 monthly payments of $68.58 to repay this loan. If the APR is 7.37% and the loan amount remains $10,000, you would make 180 monthly payments of $91.96. The APR may be increased after consummation. Requires continued enrollment of automatic payments. If the automatic payment is cancelled at any time after enrollment, the rate reduction will discontinue until automatic payment is reinstated. May be suspended during periods of forbearance and deferment.
