  4. Estimated Student Loan Refinance Post-residency Payment Examples

    Borrowers employed full time as an intern, resident, fellow, or similar postgraduate trainee at the time of loan disbursement are eligible to make $100 monthly payments throughout their training (“Residency Period”). These payments may not be enough to cover all of the interest that accrues on the loan. Unpaid accrued interest will be added to the loan principal and monthly payments of principal and interest will begin when the Residency Period ends.

    Assumptions: Repayment examples shown below are based on an original loan amount of $180,000 and assume that you make $100 monthly payments during the Residency Period of 3 months before the full repayment term begins. Repayment examples do not include any discounts.

    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.

    Variable Rates: The current index for variable rate loans is derived from the one-month London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) and changes in the LIBOR index may cause your monthly payment to increase. Borrowers who take out a term of 5, 7, or 10 years will have a maximum interest rate of 9%, those who take out a 15 or 20-year variable loan will have a maximum interest rate of 10%.

    Please note: The London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”) benchmark used as the Index for this loan is likely to be discontinued after 2021 or perhaps sooner. Should LIBOR no longer be available, an alternative published benchmark will be selected to serve as the Index. Any alternative Index may behave differently than LIBOR; however, any Index changes will not change most other terms of the loan, such as the maximum interest rate payable during the term of this loan or the timing of any interest rate resets. For more information on the possible discontinuation of LIBOR, see the Alternative Reference Rates Committee website which is maintained by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and is available at: https://www.newyorkfed.org/arrc.

  5. The 0.25% AMA member interest rate discount is offered on new student loan refinance applications from active AMA members. The AMA discount is applied to your monthly payment and will be reflected in your billing statement. The discount will end if the AMA notifies Laurel Road that the borrower is no longer a member. This offer cannot be combined with other member or employee discounts.

  6. 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.

  7. The Laurel Road Linked SavingsSM discount is available to borrowers who open a Laurel Road Linked SavingsSM account (the "Account") at the same time as when they refinance their student loans with Laurel Road. Borrowers will receive a 0.25% interest rate discount for their first two billing cycles; thereafter, the interest rate discount applied to each subsequent billing cycle will vary based on the borrower’s average daily Account balance for the month prior. The discount can vary from 0.15% for balances between $1,000 and $4,999 and 0.55% for balances of $20,000 or greater. To be eligible for a discount, borrowers must maintain a minimum Account balance of $1000. Click here for more information on the Laurel Road Linked SavingsSM Account.

  8. After loan disbursement, if a borrower documents a qualifying economic hardship, we may agree in our discretion to allow for forbearance of payments for one or more 3-month time periods (however, a minimum of twelve (12) months are required between any two forbearance periods). Borrowers with a loan term of at least ten (10) years are eligible for up to twelve (12) months of forbearance over the life of the loan; borrowers with a loan term less than ten (10) years are eligible for one (1) month for every year of the loan term (e.g., if a borrower’s loan term is five (5) years they are eligible for up to five (5) months of forbearance over the life of the loan). Borrowers seeking an economic hardship forbearance due to unemployment must have made twelve (12) consecutive monthly payments prior to a forbearance request to be eligible. For any other forbearance due to economic hardship, borrowers must have made nine (9) consecutive monthly payments prior to a forbearance request to be eligible. All requests for forbearance are subject to review, including the review of acceptable documentation (including updating documentation) of the nature and expected duration of the borrower's economic hardship. During any period of forbearance, interest will continue to accrue. Unless otherwise noted, at the end of the forbearance period, any unpaid accrued interest will be capitalized and be added to the remaining principal amount of the loan.

  9. 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.

  10. In order to receive the $100, AMA Members must open a Laurel Road High Yield SavingsSM account between 05/01/2021 and 12/30/2021, the cash bonus will be paid out within 45 days of account opening. No minimum balance is required to open the account or receive the $100 cash bonus. Limit one cash bonus per qualifying Laurel Road High Yield SavingsSM account holder.

    Laurel Road High Yield SavingsSM: No minimum balance to open an account. Variable Annual Percentage Yield (APY) varies by tier. APY for tiers below $2,000,000 the APY is 0.75%. For tiers $2,000,000+ the APY is 0.05%. APYs indicated are accurate today only and are subject to change before or after account opening. Fees may reduce earnings on the account.

    In order to open a Laurel Road High Yield SavingsSM account you must be either an existing Laurel Road customer or a new customer with the following degrees: Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO), Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), Doctor of Optometry (OD), Doctor of Audiology (AuD), Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND), Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM), Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM), or Doctor of Chiropractic (DC).

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. The 0.25% American Medical Association (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 (Automatic Payment 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.
