U.S. Bank Offers New Fixed Rate Student Loan

MINNEAPOLIS, Jun 24, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

U.S. Bank is now offering a new Fixed Rate Student Loan, featuring a low fixed rate of 7.99 percent (7.80% - 8.46% APR)1. This fixed rate loan option is a smart choice for students who want security of a fixed rate for the life of the loan.

"We are excited to offer our customers the choice of either a fixed or variable rate student loan," said Lucille Conley, senior vice president of U.S. Bank Consumer Lending. "Education changes lives, and U.S. Bank is committed to giving students every opportunity to succeed. Now with the choice to apply for the interest rate option that best fits their needs, we hope to ease the burden of the increasing cost of college."

The U.S. Bank Fixed Rate Student Loan offers a stand alone fixed rate product that does not fluctuate. All applicants will receive an interest rate of 7.99 percent (7.80% - 8.46% APR) 1 if approved for the loan.

In addition to a low fixed rate, the U.S. Bank Fixed Rate Student Loan also offers the same benefits as its existing variable rate No Fee Student Loan, including AutoPay discount2, optional deferred payments3 and the option to add a cosigner which may improve the loan's APR. Students should always explore federal loans, grants and scholarships before private loan options, but when they need funds to fill the gap, a U.S. Bank Student Loan is a smart and worry-free choice.

Along with the new Fixed Rate Student Loan product, U.S. Bank Student Lending is also debuting a new application process, so students can "Apply in 5 Minutes or Less." This quick and easy online application process can be found at its newly redesigned website, usbank.com/studentloans, which encourages an interactive customer experience while allowing students and parents to quickly compare U.S. Bank's two student loan options and determine the best loan for their needs. U.S. Bank's website also offers financial education to borrowers by providing a breakdown of college financial aid options, the application process for federal loans and a planning calendar for high school students.

U.S. Bank is one of the top student banking institutions in the nation, providing a comprehensive line of student banking products including student loans, campus ID card programs, Internet banking, U.S. Bank student checking and savings, and Visa Buxx(R) prepaid spending cards.

If the auto-payment feature is revoked, the rate reduction benefit is lost and cannot be reinstated even if automatic payments are re-established on the loan. 3.
