Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan

The Sallie Mae SmartOption Student LoanĀ® helps you save money, build your credit, and pay off your student loans faster. With the Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan, you can borrow up to the full cost of your education, less other aid received. Designed to help you graduate with less student loan debt and help you pay it off faster, the Smart Option Student Loan requires making interest-only payments while in school and during the six-month separation period to avoid capitalized interest. A creditworthy cosigner may also help you qualify and/or receive a lower interest rate.

Sallie Mae Smart Option Loan for College Eligibility

In some circumstances, the Smart Option Student Loan is available to less-than-half-time students and students enrolled in a continuing education program.

  • International students are eligible with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident) and appropriate U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service documentation

Schools also independently select specific applications to undergo verification if there are discrepancies in the data the student provided in their Financial Aid application. If you are chosen for verification you must submit requested documentation and complete a verification worksheet in order to complete your application for financial aid.
