Comparing Student Loan Rates Can Save Significant Money
Brazos’ nonprofit status allows us to offer competitive rates to Texas borrowers. Our rates are designed to save you money over the life of your loan. Compare Brazos Health Profession Loan rates to rates offered by other lenders. Ranges cover multiple available repayment options and include available discounts.
Student Loan Health Professions Fixed Interest Rates (APRs)
All displayed rates include a .25% Auto-Pay discount for auto-debt payments. Displayed rates taken from competitor websites as of 01 November 2023. The range of rates shown may have changed. Please visit each competitor's website for the most current rates and for terms and conditions to qualify for the auto-pay discount. 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 private 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.
3 Ways to Repay Brazos Health Profession Loans
Choose one of three ways to repay your medical profession loan:
Make no payments of principal or interest while in school (up to 54 months) and for six months after you graduate or cease to be enrolled at least half-time at an eligible school.
Interest Only Repayment
Pay only the interest while studying and during a six-month grace period after you graduate or withdraw enrollment at least half-time at an eligible school.
Begin repayment of principal and interest immediately after your medical school loan is fully disbursed, even while you’re in school.
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!"
- Mitchell, Brazos Borrower
"Great people and service. Always there to help or answer my questions."
- Brad, Brazos Borrower
“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."
- Alison, Brazos Borrower
"Easy access to communicate with representatives. Prompt responses from all communication as well. Customer service is excellent and feels like a small town local bank. I’ve never felt like just another number."

Frequently Asked Questions
If your credit history does not meet our minimum credit criteria, you can still qualify by applying with a qualified cosigner. 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 rate even further, thereby saving you more money over the lifespan of the loan.
