Did U know that back in 1940, a group of Burbank teachers chartered our credit union for a small, but dedicated membership? Education, teachers, and of course, students are at the core of what we do!

We were a Burbank Unified School District credit union for several years… serving teachers, employees of the district, and eventually students. Then, in 2004, we expanded our charter to include the entire community of Burbank! Thanks to your support, we’ve grown exponentially throughout the better part of a century! And now we’re able to provide top-notch and affordable products and services for a much bigger audience.

If you’re a member, you already know that at UMe, we put our members first, and student loan options are no exception. We’ve partnered with Sallie Mae to give our members great student loan options. Together, we can help U achieve your education goals so you can go off and do amazing things in this world!

Whether you’re an undergraduate or graduate, we have options to meet your specific needs. Here’s why Sallie Mae is leading the way with Student Loans:

  • Competitive interest rates. Don’t get gouged on interest to pursue your dreams. Sallie Mae’s competitive rates will help you save while going to school.
  • Loan options to match your goals. Whether you’re paying for your own education, getting some help from your parents, pursuing a graduate degree, or even a specialty degree, Sallie Mae has a plan that can fit your needs.
  • Multiple repayment options. Sallie Mae gives you the payment flexibility you’ll need to pay off you student loan in no time, with no origination fees or prepayment penalty fees.
