education financing



Northwest Institute of Idaho has partnered with Meritize Financial to offer their students educational loans as an affordable option to fund their education.

Meritize is a unique academic lender that bases loan approvals on student academic performance in addition to credit scores to expand and enhance loan options.  This broader perspective allows Meritize to offer better terms that, in some cases, may not even require a cosigner.  Students with a thin credit profile or no credit at all might benefit from a loan with Meritize.  Even if a student has an imperfect academic history, Meritize will customize a loan that meets their specific, unique needs.
