Meritize Student Loan

With a Meritize loan, you can get credit for your merit and potentially improve your loan options by sharing your academic history, military background, or work experience. If approved, full deferment during school is available. Providing your transcript – whether high school, partial or full college or previous skills-based school experience lets you get credit for your merit and fund your education.
