University of Lending

The Louisiana Credit Union League is proud to join forces with Pelican State CU and NAS JRB CU to bring the popular University of Lending to Louisiana for a special 3 day school.  

This is the first time that we have been able to bring you this Rex Johnson program, and this special collaboration allows us to bring it to you at a considerable price savings over having to travel to the University’s nearest host city.  

In this program, Ed Swanson will be teaching you how to look beyond the credit score to see not only where the member has been, but more importantly, what direction they are heading. 

Course Highlights Include:

Decision-Making & Credit Scores

  • Taking first-rate notes to avoid the ping-pong effect between application takers and decision makers
  • Adopting a solutions-based culture - saying "yes" when everyone else is busy saying "no”
  • Identifying credit scores that are falling vs those that are trending upward 
  • Avoiding loans that go bankrupt and looking closer at unsecured ratios versus traditional debt ratios


  • Using the credit score as one of your biggest sales tools
  • Turning order-takers into deal-closers
  • Showing members real dollar savings and creating lifetime members

Policies & Incentives

  • Clarifying the types of unsecured limits smaller credit unions should be offering
  • Creating a win-win incentive program
  • Competing with the "big guys" in town

“If you’re looking to grow your credit union and improve your earnings, the University of Lending is a must-attend. Our 3-day school will give your team the tools to reach your goals while helping more members than ever before!”  -Ed Swanson
