Preferred Lender list
As of June 2014, in coordination with the UCOP, we have compiled a comprehensive Preferred Lender list (PLL) with fixed rate options, variable rate options, and interest payment (while in school) options. The selection process considered the needs of our students in the categories of pricing, service, and technology. Below is the list provided by the UC Office of the President.
Loan proceeds will credit your CARS account and pay any outstanding charges. If a credit balance remains, a refund will be sent to your personal bank account if you have signed up EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer).
The Department of Education (ED) encourages all eligible students to consider Federal Loans first. Conversely, no matter what entity lends the funds, students should review the terms in detail. The Haas Financial Aid Office is available to provide further information in-person, by phone, via email and through alternate media such as podcasts and chats.
The Haas Financial Aid Office does not receive, and will not accept, inducements from lenders in exchange for inclusion in the Preferred Lender list, nor does the Haas School share in the profits from student loans. For more details feel free to read The University of California Code of Conduct in Regard to Preferred Lender Arrangements.
You can choose to borrow from the list above or from another reputable lender.
