Loans

Available to those who qualify

Sallie Mae Logo
Sallie Mae

Sallie Mae offers comprehensive information and resources to assist students, parents, and guidance professionals with financial assistance. Sallie Mae is well established and has worked with students who attend Northwest Lineman College. Many lenders have ceased to offer or make private loans for various reasons. However, you are free to do research with other private loan lenders.

More Info

Meritize

Northwest Lineman College is happy to partner with Meritize Financial to offer student loans that are customized based on individual student performance. Students are able to finance the full cost of attendance (tuition, fees, room and board.)

More Info

Mountain America Logo
Mountain America Credit Union (Idaho)

Mountain America Credit Union is a trusted lender who works directly with the Idaho NLC campus to offer our ID students private student loans. Minimum criteria for loan:

  • A Northwest Lineman Student applying for the Idaho NLC campus
  • A Student who resides in Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, & New Mexico

More Info

OTHER PRIVATE LOANS

Local banks and credit unions sometimes offer loans to those pursuing education, and can be a great resource. That said, it’s important to know the following when seeking untraditional private student loans:

  • NLC does not receive, participate, or qualify for Title IV Funding (anything requiring a FAFSA application—Pell Grant, Stafford Loan, etc). As such, NLC does not provide 1098-T tax forms. Pass this info on to your loan officer to help them find the best option for you.
  • Not all banks offer student loans, but don’t be discouraged—ask them to help you explore all options.
  • Private student loans are becoming more and more common, and most can be applied for online. An Internet search using keywords like “private student loans,” “non-federal student loans,” or “career training loans” may generate useful results.
OTHER POSSIBLE FUNDING SOURCES

Students or their families who may belong to a church or any other type of civic-minded organization, like Boys Scouts or 4H, please keep in mind you could qualify for scholarships with one or more of these types of organizations. Typically Rotary Clubs, various women’s organizations & American Legions or VFWs will also offer small scholarships that help lighten the financial load of funding education.

NLC does accept 529s. Please contact your Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to discuss your specific plan and how to move forward.
