Understand your interest rate options
Wells Fargo offers you the choice of variable and fixed interest rates.
Each option has unique advantages to consider before choosing your rate.
How are they different?
Variable interest rates
Generally provide a lower initial rate than fixed rates
The interest rate may increase or decrease over the life of the loan
Monthly payments may increase or decrease over the life of the loan
Fixed interest rates
The interest rate remains the same over the life of the loan
Allow you to better predict how much total interest you’ll pay on your loan
Monthly payments will remain the same over the life of the loan
Included are two Application Disclosures; one for the variable interest rate and one for the
fixed interest rate. The Application Disclosures will help you understand the terms of the loan program and
the cost of taking the loan.
Please review the pages carefully before choosing your interest rate.

Federal law provides important protections to members of the Armed Forces and their dependents relating to
extensions of consumer credit. In general, the cost of consumer credit to a member of the Armed Forces and his or
her dependent may not exceed an annual percentage rate of 36 percent. This rate must include, as applicable to the
credit transaction or account: the costs associated with credit insurance premiums, fees for ancillary products sold in
connection with the credit transaction, any application fee charged (other than certain application fees for specified
credit transactions or accounts), and any participation fee charged (other than certain participation fees for a credit
card account).
Please Note: There ARE NO credit insurance premiums, fees for ancillary products (none are sold in connection
with this education loan), application fees, nor any participation fees applicable to your Wells Fargo private
