Adjustable Rate Loan Programs

American Eagle offers a variety of adjustable rate loan programs that may fit your needs.

However, the rate is not fixed for the term of the loan, and will adjust after the fixed portion of the loan has expired.

American Eagle offers the following Adjustable Rate Loans:

  • 5/5 ARM (Fixed for 60 months, adjusts every 60 months for remainder of loan)
  • 7/1 ARM (Fixed for 84 months, adjusts every 12 months for remainder of loan)
  • 10/1 ARM (Fixed for 120 months, adjusts every 12 months for remainder of loan)
