Things you’ll need

SoFi’s quick pre-approval process lets you know if you qualify before you complete the full application. To receive a quote, you’ll need to gather the following information.

  • Address
  • School(s) attended
  • Total amount of loans
  • Income
  • SSN (for a preliminary credit check)
  • Driver’s license
  • Passport (if you have private loans only)
  • Utility bill
  • Pay stub, or tax return if self-employed
  • 10 day pay off amounts for existing loans (see explanation below)

What does “10-day pay off amounts for existing loans” mean?
Loan balances are calculated on a daily basis. This would cause a problem, for example, if you’re told you owe $1,000 and mail a check that day that’s deposited 4 days later. To deal with this, a lender has to provide a fixed number that, if paid off within 10 days, the borrower will pay without having to be concerned about daily loan-balance fluctuations.

²Rate discount will be issued electronically once you become a SoFi borrower; you have submitted a completed application with documents and your loan has been disbursed. Offer good for new customers only.
