Displayed rates taken from competitor websites as of 01 June 2023. The range of rates shown may have changed. Please visit each competitor's website for the most current rates. Like at Brazos, the specific rate you receive from other lenders is dependent on numerous factors, including your creditworthiness, the term and repayment option you select, available borrower benefits and the length of any deferment period(s) assumed in calculating the rates.
Rates are not the only factor to consider when shopping for a graduate student loan. As with any loan, think carefully about your financial situation and understand the details about the loans you’re comparing when deciding which private student loan is right for you.

What People Say
- Kenn, Brazos Borrower
"Our family has worked hard to build good credit. The team at Brazos made sure we were able to make that effort really pay off. We received a better rate on our two student’s education costs than we could find anywhere. Our advisor was always available and went the extra mile to make a complicated process work for us. Thank you... We will see you again next year!"

“I was surprised to find the Federal Parent PLUS Loan charges an origination fee of 4.2% with interest rates in the 7.6% range. Brazos offers lower rates and zero fees. They made it easy to apply and work through the process."

Frequently Asked Questions

Additionally, even if you meet the minimum requirements, applying with a cosigner who has a stronger credit history may reduce the interest rate on your student loan even further, thereby saving you more money over the life of the loan.
