Thrivent is actually a very well known credit union which recently entered the student loan refinance space. They recently began offering student loan refinancing.
In our 2019 Thrivent student loan refinance review, we provide an overview of the company, pros, and cons. Be sure to check out the other companies also by checking out our Best Student Loan Refinance Company review page.
As noted in our Student Loan Refinance Guide, FitBUX partners with seven student loan refinancing companies. We have an in-depth knowledge of their underwriting guidelines and have been asked by each company not to disclose certain items. We honor their wishes by not giving out specific information such as typical rates for various FICO scores and DTI ratios. If you’d like help based on your situation, I highly recommend using our free student loan refinance service in which we will help you choose the right student loan refinancing company.
Thrivent Student Loans Company Overview
Thrivent student loan refinance is relatively new. Therefore, their technology isn’t close to the other companies we work with. For example, you still have to complete a full application to see rates. Thus, they do a hard credit check to provide you rates (see may impact your credit score), while our other partners only do a soft credit check, which does not impact your credit.
In addition, the application takes about 25 minutes relative to the other companies that take anywhere between 1 and 5 minutes to see rates.
Also, Thrivent student loan only offers one loan term, 15 years.
So why has FitBUX accepted Thrivent as a partner?
- They offer a competitive rate for the 15 year loan.
- Thrivent will provide rates to “lesser” credit quality borrowers.
- They offer a spousal co-signor option.
Most importantly, Thrivent is one of the best-ran credit unions in the country. They’ve also assembled a great management team to launch their student loan product. We are optimistic that they are going to have an extremely good product in the coming years.
