Congratulations! You're pursuing post-secondary education. It's an exciting time but it can be demanding. You should be focused on your studies, not your finances.
Let us take one worry off your mind by helping you finance your education.
If you are enrolled at a designated post-secondary education institution and carrying at least 60% of a full-time course load (that is at least three courses per semester in a program 12 weeks or longer), you are eligible to apply for a student loan.
On approved credit, get a great rate and pay only the interest until you graduate. Maximum amount you may borrow varies based on your program of study. Talk to one of our financial advisors about customizing a loan for you.
Let us help you make an investment in your future.

Share in the success of your credit union
Sharing our success with the people who make it possible is a fundamental principle of being a credit union. It's our way of saying thanks for being a loyal and committed member of Servus Credit Union.
Servus Credit Union's Profit Share program creates a balance between rewarding you for being a loyal member and ensuring the sustainability of our credit union by building its capital base. To achieve this goal, Profit Sharing is paid out in both cash and common shares, based on the profitability and equity position of the credit union.
The Profit Share program has three components: Patronage, Common Share Dividends and Investment Share Dividends.
Members are rewarded for banking with us. Patronage rewards are paid in cash, based on a percentage of the interest paid on loans, earned on deposits and the average balance held in demand accounts (the specific percentage is determined on an annual basis). Agriculture and Commercial accounts receive a cash Patronage through a rebate on their service charges, rather than on interest paid or received.
Common share dividends
Common Share Dividends are paid in the form of additional Common Shares. Paying dividends as shares strengthens our financial position and builds a strong share base, which ensures we will continue providing you with superior service and financial solutions. It also allows members to earn more dividends in future years on the re-invested Common Shares.
Investment share dividends
Investment Share Dividends are paid out in the form of additional shares or cash, based on the terms of the Disclosure Statement under which the shares were issued.
The total amount of Profit Share paid to members, including both Patronage and Dividends, is based on our credit union's performance throughout the year and determined by the Board of Directors at the end of our fiscal year.
