LendUp can help you with your emergency today, but we can also help you down the road. If you successfully complete and timely pay off your LendUp loans, you may be eligible to borrow more money (up to $1000 per loan), often with less interest. In time, you may even qualify for our credit building products that may help you get on the path to a more secure financial future. You can learn more by exploring the LendUp Ladder (where available).
The Truth in Lending Act requires all lenders, including online payday loan lenders, to disclose the cost of the loan in writing before you sign any agreement to take the loan. They must give you this information in terms of the finance charge and APR (annual percentage rate). Even after reading this information, you might not understand just how expensive payday loans truly are.
While the majority of emergency loans are eligible for automatic approval and issued rapidly, students should allow for 2-3 business days for emergency loans to be reviewed and approved. Some applications require additional review by a financial aid staff member. You may be required to provide additional information prior to notification of a decision, so please respond promptly to any requests related to your emergency loan application.
Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.
