WASHINGTON (2/4/10)--Credit Union Student Choice, which provides turnkey private student lending services to credit unions, announced a strategic business partnership with Collegiate Funding Solutions (CFS), a provider of Web-based college funding solutions and college planning software for the financial services industry. The partnership will provide cross promotion by each organization and an integrated package to credit unions that offer both programs, according to Mike Weber, vice president of marketing for Credit Union Student Choice.
