Student loan application process

  1. Submit an application (2 business days)

    To get the loan process started, first begin an online loan application. If you have a cosigner, they will need to register online and choose an e-sign or paper signature option. After you've submitted your application, you can log back in at any time to check on the loan status. Get started by applying online.

  2. Get approved (10 business days)

    We will review and process your application within 48 hours and notify you when it's completed.

  3. School certification (30 days or less)

    Your school will certify the total amount of eligible expenses for the loan period and when loan funds need to be disbursed.

  4. Truth-in-Lending Disclosure (7 business days)

    After your school has certified your expenses, we will deliver a Truth-in-Lending Disclosure. This will give you a chance to review all the loan terms and conditions.

  5. Final Promissory Note (7-12 business days)

    Before your school term begins, we will send you a final Truth-in-Lending statement that confirms the rate, amount of the loan and other key information. You will also have a period of 3 days called the “Right of Rescission” to cancel your loan for any reason.

  6. Loan funding

    We will disperse the funds directly to your school by the required date, and you will be on your way to putting another school term in the books.

Add a cosigner

Adding a cosigner to your Alliant Credit Union Student Loan may improve your chances of qualifying and help you get an even lower interest rate52.

Borrow what you need to succeed

If you already have financial aid or a partial scholarship, an Alliant Student Loan picks up the difference. You can also use your student loan to pay for non-tuition expenses like housing, books and meals.
