Student Loan Refinancing Disclosures

Laurel Road Legal Disclosure

A $550 cash bonus offered on new student loan refinance applications from active Physician on Fire (PoF) readers. The loan application must close in order to qualify for the bonus which will be paid within 45 days of closing. Existing customers are not eligible. This offer cannot be combined with other member or employee discounts nor the Student Loan Refer-a-Friend Program.

Checking your rate with Laurel Road only requires a soft credit pull, which will not affect your credit score. To proceed with an application, a hard credit pull will be required, which may affect your credit score.

AutoPay/EFT Discount: if the borrower chooses to make monthly payments automatically by electronic fund transfer (EFT) from a bank account, the interest rate will decrease by 0.25% and will increase back if the borrower stops making (or we stop accepting) monthly payments automatically by EFT from the borrower’s bank account. The AutoPay/EFT Discount will not reduce the monthly payment; instead, the discount is applied to the principal to help pay the loan down faster.

ISL Education Lending Disclosure

^^1During your residency, you must make monthly payments of at least $75.00 for the Reset Refinance Loan for Medical Residents. The $75.00 monthly payments during the Residency Period may not be enough to fully pay the interest that will accrue during the Residency Period. If the interest that accrues each month is more than $75.00, the amount of interest that is not paid will be added to your loan balance. Your loan balance may therefore increase during your Residency Period even though you are making the required payments, which is called negative amortization. Because of the negative amortization, your loan will have a larger principal balance at the start of the Post-Residency Repayment Period than the amount that you originally borrowed. Annual percentage rates (APRs) of 4.10% – 8.21% assume a principal and interest repayment term as short as five years and as long as 20 years, borrowing $100,000, a 0% origination fee, deferring principal and interest for 66 months while requiring $75.00 monthly payments, and assumes you are enrolled in and maintain auto-debit payments during the Post-Residency Repayment Period. Enrolling in auto-debit during the Post-Residency Repayment Period results in a 0.25% interest rate reduction during the Post-Residency Repayment Period. Without enrolling in auto-debit, the APR range would be from 4.18% – 8.36% APR. Not all borrowers receive the lowest rate. If you are approved for a loan, the rate offered will depend on your credit profile and the term you select.

Autopay Discount: The SoFi 0.25% autopay interest rate reduction requires you to agree to make your scheduled monthly payments by an automatic monthly deduction (ACH) from a savings or checking account. The benefit will discontinue and be lost for periods in which you do not pay by automatic deduction from a savings or checking account. The discount will not reduce the monthly payment; instead, the interest savings are applied to the principal loan balance, which may help pay the loan down faster. Enrolling in autopay is not required to receive a loan from SoFi.

‡100/mo Medical-Dental Resident PaymentNotice: The minimum monthly payment of $100, while in residency period, may not pay all of the interest due each month, which will likely result in negative amortization during the residency period. This repayment example is based on typical loan terms for a freshman borrower who pays $100 per month during residency with a 10-year repayment term, a $100,000 loan that is disbursed in a single disbursement, with a 0.25% autopay discount, and a fixed rate between 4.62% – 5.66% APR (with autopay). It also assumes the borrower remains in residency for 4 years and has a 6-month grace period (together, “the residency period”) before the full repayment term begins. It works out to 54 monthly payments of $100 a month during the residency period. Then, followed by 120 monthly payments, ranging from $1,042.18 – $1,093.21 while in the full repayment period, for a total amount of payments ranging from $125,061.40 – $131,184.96. This repayment example assumes that the borrower is signed up for autopay and that all payments are made on time, with no pre-payments. Actual rates may vary based loan amount, creditworthiness, and other terms and conditions. Enrolling in autopay is not required to receive a loan from SoFi .SoFi refinance loans are private loans and do not have the same repayment options that the federal loan program offers such as Income Based Repayment or Income Contingent Repayment or PAYE. In addition, federal student loans offer deferment and forbearance options that are not available to you if you take out a Medical Resident Loan Refi offered by SoFi Lending Corp. or an affiliate (dba SoFi).

Rates: Fixed rates range from 2.49% APR to 7.59% APR with a 0.25% autopay discount. Variable rates from 1.74% APR to 7.24% APR with a 0.25% autopay discount. Unless required to be lower to comply with applicable law, Variable Interest rates on 5-, 7-, and 10-year terms are capped at 8.95% APR; 15- and 20-year terms are capped at 9.95% APR. Your actual rate will be within the range of rates listed above and will depend on the term you select, evaluation of your creditworthiness, income, presence of a co-signer and a variety of other factors. Lowest rates reserved for the most creditworthy borrowers. For the SoFi variable-rate product, the variable interest rate for a given month is derived by adding a margin to the 30-day average SOFR index, published two business days preceding such calendar month, rounded up to the nearest one hundredth of one percent (0.01% or 0.0001). APRs for variable-rate loans may increase after origination if the SOFR index increases.

This benefit will discontinue and be lost for periods in which you do not pay by automatic deduction from a savings or checking account. The benefit lowers your interest rate but does not change the amount of your monthly payment. This benefit is suspended during periods of deferment and forbearance.
