Notice: This is not a commitment to lend or extend credit. Conditions and restrictions may apply. Information and offer are subject to change without notice. All loans are subject to credit approval. Mortgage is also subject to collateral approval.

  1. The AMA $100 cash bonus is offered for medical school loan applications from active AMA members. The loan application must close in order to qualify for the bonus. Cash bonus will be paid within 45 days of closing. Offer cannot be combined with other Laurel Road offers, including the Referral Program and any other AMA member offer. Existing customers are not eligible.
  2. FOR MEDICAL SCHOOL LOANS ONLY. Following graduation from an eligible medical school and subject to lender's review of supporting documentation, you may elect to defer monthly payments while enrolled in a medical residency or medical fellowship program (up to a maximum of four (4) years). Interest will continue to accrue on the outstanding principal balance of your loan during the Medical Residency Deferment and you will not be eligible for an AutoPay/EFT discount during such time. Interest that accrues and remains unpaid will be added to the principal balance at the end of the Medical Residency Deferment period.
    THIS IS NOT A FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN. The terms of this product may differ from terms available with a federal student loan. For example, this product does not contain special features such as income-based repayment plans. Also deferment, forbearance options, and loan forgiveness options may differ from those available for federal student loans, and privately-funded student loans are not eligible to be included in a Federal Direct Consolidation Loan. For more information about Federal student loan programs, please visit https://studentloans.gov.
  3. The 0.25% AMA member interest rate discount is offered for personal loan applications from active AMA members. The rate discount will end if AMA notifies Laurel Road that borrower is no longer in good standing. An additional 0.25% interest rate discount is available for making automatic payments from a bank account by an electronic fund transfer (EFT) (the AutoPay/EFT Discount). Both discounts reduce the monthly payment. The AMA member interest rate discount cannot be combined with other offers, except any discount for making automatic payments.
  4. The interest rate discount of 0.25% is offered to borrowers that are an active AMA member at the time of closing. This 0.25% interest rate discount cannot be combined with other offers, except the Rewards Program. For Fixed-rate mortgages, the 0.25% rate discount is a permanent interest rate reduction that will be reflected in the Promissory Note interest rate. For adjustable-rate mortgages, the 0.25% rate discount will apply to the initial Fixed interest rate period and will be reflected in the maximum amount the interest rate can increase over the term of the loan, subject to the minimum interest rate that may be charged per the terms of the Promissory Note.
  5. Laurel Road offers up to $650 in lender's credit towards your mortgage closing costs. Credits cannot exceed borrowers actual costs to close. For more information refer to the Rewards Program below.

†Fixed Rate Resident Interview Loan Repayment Examples:

Term (years) Interest Rate APR Monthly Payment
6 (4 years reduced payment period and 2 years full repayment) 10.000% 9.079% 48 months of $25
24 months of $590.66
7 (4 years reduced payment period and 3 years full repayment) 10.500% 9.557% 48 months of $25
36 months of $422.53
7 (5 years reduced payment period and 2 years full repayment) 10.000% 8.843% 60 months of $25
24 months of $622.96

All repayment examples assume a loan amount of $10,000 and that Borrowers make $25 monthly payments from disbursement for 48 months or 60 months ("Residency Period"). These payments may not be enough to cover all of the interest that accrues on the loan. Once the Residency Period ends, any unpaid accrued interest will be added to the loan principal and monthly payments of principal and interest will begin.

The APRs and interest rates do not include any discounts. A borrower's actual rate and payment amount may vary, and is determined by the product, term, loan amount, and your credit qualifications.

Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”): This term represents the actual cost of financing to the borrower over the life of the loan expressed as a yearly rate.

Interest Rate: A simple annual rate that is applied to an unpaid balance.

Note: The interest rate is higher than the APR because the APR considers the effects of the period of Reduced Payment.
