I think it’s great to have products for doctors because we have an unusual trajectory where we have high earning potential, but don’t always qualify for much on paper.

  1. GradFin and Laurel Road are brands of KeyBank N.A.

  2. GradFin members that met the requirement for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) qualified for an average of $116,697.74 in student loan forgiveness as of 01/08/2024.

  3. Member Name members get a 20.00% discount on an annual Public Service Loan Forgiveness (“PSLF”) program membership with GradFin (“Offer”). The discount will be applied on the current annual membership fee of $249.00 and will automatically apply at checkout. This Offer is only available to current Member Name members, is non-transferable and cannot be applied to previous membership purchase(s). This Offer cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with other offers and is subject to cancellation at any time and without notice.

  4. To qualify for Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), you must be employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization (federal service includes U.S. military service); work full-time for that agency or organization; have Direct Loans (or consolidate other federal student loans into a Direct Loan); repay your loans under an income-driven repayment plan; and make 120 qualifying payments. For full program requirements, visit: https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/public-service.

  5. A $300 cash bonus offered on new student loan refinance applications from active Member Name members. The loan application must close in order to qualify for the bonus which will be paid within 45 days of closing. Existing Laurel Road members are not eligible. This offer cannot be combined with any other discounts from Laurel Road affiliated partners or employers nor the Student Loan Refer-a-Friend Program.

  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. 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.

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

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 30-day Average Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) and changes in the SOFR index may cause your monthly payment to increase. Although the rate will vary after you are approved, it will never exceed 15.00%. There is no limit on the amount your interest rate can increase at one time. The Index is currently published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (“New York Fed”). If the Index is no longer available, it will be replaced by a replacement Index according to the terms of the promissory note.
