If at any time automatic payments are stopped or the loan is not in good standing, the rate discount will not be applied.
For all loans with a Fixed APR: Monthly payments are calculated with the original loan rate and will not be reduced by the discounted rate. For all loans with a Variable APR: The rate stated on this agreement is based on the rate at the time of loan funding. The index will adjust as stated in your loan agreement resulting in a rate change and new monthly payment.
