You may make additional payments greater than the installment amount at any time without penalty. Additional payments are applied to your principal balance after all outstanding interest is satisfied.
Standard Payment Application: Payment is applied first toward any late fees, next to outstanding accrued interest then to the principal balance.
Partial Payments: Payments less than the required monthly installment amount are applied using the standard payment application. Payments less than the required monthly amount may cause your account to become delinquent. We may report information about your account to consumer reporting agencies. Late payments, missed payments or defaults on your account may be reflected on your credit report.
