6. What is APR? How is it different from interest rates? Where will I find the APR of my loan?
APR (Annual Percentage Rate) is a financial tool that helps you understand the full cost of your loan (interest rate and fees) as an number representing the cost of your loan annually, expressed as a percentage. There are two main benefits for this - there are no hidden fees (surprises), and you can compare loan products with each other.
Even if two students have the same interest rate, APR might be different. One common reason is the loan size. APR includes admin fee, which is a function of the loan size, and as admin fee changes, APR will differ.
