Top 10 Reasons to Apply for a NMEAF Student Loan
We are a Non-Profit Organization
That’s right – we are NOT for profit. Unlike other lenders, all of the money we earn beyond expenses goes back into helping students and families plan, prepare and pay for college.
We Won’t Issue Bad Loans
If we feel that a private student loan is not in your best interest we won’t approve your application. We want our students to have a healthy financial future.
We Only Offer Fixed Interest Rates
Unlike other private loan providers, we don’t issue variable interest rate loans because we care about your financial future. Fixed interest rates allow you to plan for and establish a reasonable loan repayment strategy. Federal government student loans also only have fixed interest rates.
We’re Based in New Mexico
We understand New Mexico’s students and universities better than any other student loan provider. If you ever want help in person you can visit our friendly representatives in our Albuquerque office. Also, when you borrow from us, you are helping employ fellow New Mexicans.

We believe you will be a good borrower so after 24 consecutive on-time repayments, we will reduce your interest rate by 0.25%.
Graduation Interest Rate Reduction
Your success matters to us. When you graduate we will reduce your interest rate by 0.25% as our special graduation present to you.
No Origination or Disbursement Fees
We won’t charge you for processing or disbursing your student loan; we feel this is money that should stay with you. All student loans have no penalties for early payments.
Multiple Repayment Options
We care about your financial future success so we will work with you to find the right loan repayment plan. And, if you sign up for automatic payments we will reduce your interest rate by 0.25%.
Cosigner Early Release Option
After 24 months of payments and a proven credit check, the student borrower may apply to have their cosigner released from the student loan.
