Why use a student line of credit?

For starters, because it’s designed for the student budget. While you’re a student, you only pay the monthly interest. That means you don’t have to pay back the principal while you’re in school.

Plus, it’s for all types of students. Whether you’re enrolled in a post-secondary training program offered by a recognized educational institution (CEGEP or university), or enrolled in a specialized training program offered by a private institution, the student line of credit has you covered.
