If you choose to move forward with your loan application, Laurel Road will make a hard credit inquiry so that we may view your full credit report and make final rate offers.These hard credit inquiries are common and necessary to obtain a loan and may impact your credit score.

    3. Select your loan type and term; you can e-sign all necessary disclosures and the promissory note in the Laurel Road dashboard.

  • What are the repayment options for a Residency Interview Loan?

    Laurel Road offers reduced payments through the end of school and during training. The total period of reduced payments cannot exceed 60 months and cannot be less than 48 months. During this reduced payment period, interest on the loan will continue to accrue. Unpaid accrued interest will capitalize (added to the unpaid principal balance of the loan) at the end of the reduced payment period.

  • What if I have 12 months or less left of residency, am I eligible for reduced payments?
    Yes, if your loan is approved, you will be eligible to make reduced payments for 12 months. You may pay more than the reduced payment at any time with no pre-payment penalty. Should you pay more, your payment will be applied first to unpaid interest, then to principal and finally to any applicable fees or other charges. After 12 months, any unpaid interest will capitalize, and a new repayment schedule will be calculated to reflect your full monthly payment.
  • Am I required to have direct pay if the purpose of my loan is debt consolidation?
    No, direct pay for debt consolidation is not always required. For customers with large balances, we reserve the right to direct pay.
