Meritize Student Loans
TEEX offers students the option of paying for the following TEEX programs through Meritize Student Loans. With a Meritize loan, you can enhance your credit evaluation and improve your loan options by sharing your academic profile. 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. You are not required to be an “A” student, have good credit, or have a cosigner.
