Under the Federal Truth in Lending Act (TILA), your private education loan lender is required to provide disclosure of loan terms and features at the time of application, a second disclosure after the initial application reaches an approval status and a final disclosure once the loan is accepted. After the final disclosure is sent, the lender also must provide the student with a 'right to cancel' period (3-6 days depending on mode of delivery). A self-certification form must be completed by the borrower and submitted to your lender before your loan may be disbursed to your SNHU student account.
