"Today the world is competitive, more than it’s ever been. I believe men and women need to get all of the education which will enable them to meet the exigencies of life ... Men and women need to be prepared for a vastly broader scope than we have ever had before"

- President Thomas S. Monson


Slide3 l.jpg

  • “It is incumbent upon every member of the Church, as a mandate from the Lord, to get all the education you can get.”

  • “Education becomes the key of opportunity for everyone in this life. It may involve sacrifice, it may involve unusual effort, but with the help of heaven, it can be had.”

    - President Gordon B. Hinckley

Disclosure l.jpg

Disclosure

The federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act prohibits us from discriminating against credit applicants on the basis of race, color, sex, marital status, age (provided the applicant has the capacity to enter into a binding contract); because all or part of the applicant's income derives from any public assistance program; or because the applicant has in good faith exercised any right under the Consumer Credit Protection Act.  Nonetheless, because our loans are part of a special purpose credit program designed to benefit economically disadvantaged, faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are citizens of countries other than the United States or Canada, we may consider factors such as religion, national origin, and financial need in determining who receives our loans.
