Benefits of autopay include a 0.25% decrease in your interest rate as long as you’re enrolled. Your payment will be automatically deducted from your account each month.  Applying for automatic payments is quick and easy! 

Pay by Phone

To make a payment over the phone, contact one of our loan specialists. Payments can be scheduled up to 60 days in advance.

Acceptable Payment Methods

CornerStone accepts electronic checks, paper checks and money orders. 

How Payments are Applied

With limited exceptions, payments are applied first to any outstanding accrued interest, and then to the principal balance.

How to Payoff Your Loans

If you are planning on making a payment that will payoff your balance, please contact us to discuss your payoff amount or refer to the payoff amount listed in your online account. Your student loans accrue daily interest so it’s important that you reference the correct amount.
