<p>MECHANICSBURG, Pa. – Members 1st FCU wants to make going to college more affordable for its members. The $671-million credit union will absorb the cost of two origination points on the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency’s Keystone BLSTT Stafford Loan for the academic year 2002-2003. The remaining origination point is underwritten by PHEAA.
