Student Lending CUSO Credit Union Student Choice announced its 150th credit union partner.
The CUSO recently added $1.2 billion GTE Federal Credit Union in Tampa, Fla., $1.5 billion NEFCU in Westbury, N.Y. and $1.2 billion Associated Credit Union in Norcross, Ga. to the list of credit unions that offer its private student loan product.
"Along with these three, we've added nearly 50 credit unions in the last five months alone?a wonderful endorsement of the program we've built. But most importantly, it means that millions of students and families will have access to fair value private student loans this summer, from a lender they can trust," said Jon Jeffreys, president of CU Student Choice.
Since the CUSO launched in May 2008 it has funded more than $185 million in loans.
