If you’re approved for an increase, it will be for the highest amount we can offer you. If you make your request online and want a lower amount, you’ll be able to tell us the amount you would like before accepting the increase.
When you submit your request, we’ll review your information. In many cases, we can approve credit line increases immediately. However, we sometimes need to review certain information to make a decision, and that may take a few days. If you’ve signed up for paperless documents, you’ll receive a letter in the Online Document Center 3 to 5 days after requesting a credit line increase. If you haven’t signed up for paperless documents, you’ll receive a letter by mail within 7 to 10 days days of your request
All payments are applied to your account on the scheduled payment date. Although you may not see the funds come out of your bank account for a day or two (possible more when due to weekends or holidays), the payment is still considered effective on that date.
We first apply your payment to the interest that has accrued since the last payment was received. We then apply the rest towards your loan balance or principal. Interest is based on the remaining principal, interest rate and number of days in the year. However, as the principal is paid down, monthly interest decreases as well. Extra funds first pay any outstanding fees and then are applied to the principal.
