How It Works

Funds are given directly to your school for tuition and other expenses. If additional funds remain after tuition, fees, and other campus costs are paid, the school sends this money to the student for books, transportation, technology, and other expenses. You can then request additional funds as needed or pay back unused funds, so that you borrow exactly how much you need.


  • Enrolled at least half-time in a degree-granting program at one of 2,000+ eligible colleges/universities
  • Student and co-signer (if applicable) have a checking or savings account at MVCU or BCU
  • Student meets the school’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements
  • U.S. citizen or permanent resident
  • Student or co-signer meets the income and credit score requirements
