Borrow Responsibility

We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for
college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student
expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.


These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. Empire One is not the creditor for these
loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.

Smart Option Student Loan and graduate loan products: These loans are for students at participating degree-granting schools. Smart Option Student Loan information is for undergraduates only. Graduate

Certificate/Continuing Education coursework is not eligible for MBA, Medical, Dental, and Law School Loans.
Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must reside in the U.S., attend a participating
school in the U.S., apply with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident) and
provide an unexpired government-issued photo ID to verify their identity. Applications are subject to a requested
minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.

1 Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined
in your promissory note—first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.


You can now pay your loan from another financial institution. Loan Pay
