Terms & Conditions of Education Loans

Please note, the below criteria is in place for HSSCU’s Education Loans:

  1. The purpose of the loan must specifically be to help students fund their education i.e. for Hibernia College course fees, books, study equipment, etc.
  2. It is important to note that this is a loan application. Loan approval is not guaranteed. Loans will be granted based on the ability to repay.
  3. It may be the case that a guarantor is required in order to approve your education loan application.

Want to apply for a loan while studying that’s not linked to your education? HSSCU also provides Student Lifestyle Loans, as we know we all need a break from time to time.
