Why did we partner with Granite Edvance?

The Merrimack and Granite Edvance have a lot in common. We both care about personalized local service, your financial wellness, and community involvement. They are laser focused on one thing: Helping you.

And you’ll be able to choose from:

Student Loans:

Loans from $2,001 to the cost of attendance minus any financial aid accepted

The student acts as the primary borrower but may require a cosigner to meet eligibility requirements. Eligible borrowers must be a NH resident or enrolled at least half-time at a NH-based Title IV degree‑granting institution. State residency restrictions apply. Loans offered through Granite Edvance are private student loans and are intended to supplement, not replace, federal and institutional financial aid options. Students are encouraged to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and to consult their post-secondary institution’s financial aid office to discuss all available options.

Refinance Loans:

Loans from $7,500 – $200,000

Refinance disclosure: Eligible loans include federal and private student loans used for attendance at a Title IV degree granting institution. Refinancing a federal loan means forfeiting the benefits associated with federal loans. We encourage you to speak with your federal loan servicer and research the options before choosing to refinance a federal student loan.
