Checking your loan options online will not impact your credit score. When you check your rate to see what offer(s) you may qualify for, Meirtize performs a soft inquiry on your credit report, which won’t impact your credit score. Other creditors won’t be able to view soft inquiries since they can only be seen by you.
Once you’ve selected the loan option that’s best for you, you’ll be asked to complete an application and to enter additional information. Once your application is complete Meritize performs a hard inquiry on your credit report which may impact your credit score. Meritize will let you know during the application process at what point your credit score might be impacted.
At this time CodingNomads is only able to offer financing to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. We hope to be able to offer financing to non-US students soon. If you’re interested in international financing, let us know!
No. Many of our students are beginner coders, and our programs are built for absolute beginners. However, our admissions team will ask questions to assess your motivations and aptitude for learning technical skills and finding work after the program. We only approve financing for students who demonstrate a strong potential to succeed in our programs, and therefore who will benefit from this financial investment.
Having a co-borrower can potentially improve your loan options. Because Meritize considers your academic, military, or work achievements, you get credit for your merit and could be approved without a co-borrower.
Call Meritize at 833-MERIT-4U (833-637-4848) or email [email protected].
To accept your loan offer, either accept within the application, or reply back to the email you received from [email protected] with the subject line “Congratulations from Meritize.” If you are having trouble finding this email, please check your junk/spam folder. If you have any further questions, call us at 833-MERIT-4U (833-637-4848) or email [email protected].
You will receive a decision on your loan 2 business days after Meritize receives your completed application. A completed application includes your merit documents or confirmation that you do not plan to include these with your application.
Yes. If your loan is declined, you’ll receive a notice via email to help you understand the reason for your denial. Once you have addressed the issues listed on your credit report, we encourage you to reapply.
Merit documents are records from your academic or military history.
Meritize has a proprietary credit evaluation that takes your previous experience and gives you financial credit for it. We look beyond your FICO score at your merit documents to potentially give you better loan terms.
If possible, please submit your merit document with your online application. If you applied and did not include your merit document, please send it to [email protected].
Payback period (tenor) options include 1.5 years, 3 years and 5 years.
