To obtain a loan from Fidelity, call Fidelity to obtain forms at 1-800-544-4774.

If you are married, you must include spousal approval/signature. If your spouse is not known personally to HR or is not a college employee, their signature must be notarized. This can be done without cost at the La Cumbre Fidelity office or at your bank for a fee. 

When the Fidelity Loan forms are complete, contact HR at 805-565-6101 to advise them that you need a signature for your request. Once HR has signed the forms, they will return them to you so that you may forward them to Fidelity. Fidelity has a quick turnaround as long as the documents are 100% complete when they are received.


Loan requests can be made by participants via their TIAA-CREF personal online account.  Just login, go to “manage my account” then “request a loan”.  Or if you have questions or would like a paper application,  call TIAA at 1-800-842-2776 (M-F 5am-7pm PT, Sat 6am-3pm PT)
