Borrow responsibly

We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.

These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. Texans Credit Union is not the creditor for these loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.

And it’s available on most new and used auto, motorcycle and RV loans1.

Car repairs today can set you back thousands of dollars. Fortunately, Texans offers its members Major Mechanical Protection (MMP) coverage.
