At Citizens Bank, we know that figuring out how to pay for higher education can be challenging.  We also know that more often than not, when parents and students have questions, the first person they turn to is their financial aid officer.  That’s why we want you to know we’re here to help you make the student lending process as easy as possible.  

At Citizens Bank, we understand that each student, parent and graduate is different.  That’s why we offer plenty of choices including Student Loans, Parent Loans, and a Multi-Year Approval.  Visit www.citizensbank.com/student-loans.

Cognition Financial (formerly First Marblehead Corporation) is a leading provider of private student loan solutions for lenders, credit unions, and schools. An engine for our partners’ growth, we take a thoughtful, collaborative approach to product development and delivery.

Our current Private Loan partners include:

SunTrust Custom Choice Loan:
This loan product provides undergraduate and graduate students competitive pricing, a choice of a fixed or variable rate, and borrower benefits that encourage thoughtful, informed borrowing decisions. The application process provides added transparency by displaying, in the same session, an estimated repayment calculation for the actual pricing offered. The online application allows applicants to customize their loan options and see the impact of their choices on pricing before they make any commitment.

Union Federal Private Student Loan:
This loan product offers fixed or variable interest rates, multiple repayment options, and is available to both undergraduate and graduate students.

*NEW* In School Refinance Option: SunTrust offers an in-school refinance option that gives students the option to refinance existing private student loans into a new private student loan. This option combines existing student loans with the funds needed for next semester into one new loan.

  • Students can also see how much their loan would cost—under each repayment scenario—if they select a loan term of 5, 8, 10, or 15 years.
  • We clearly explain each repayment choice and how much money borrowers can save through in-school payments and shorter repayment terms.
