Setting You Up For Success

How the smartest students have figured out that using Student Loan Corp sponsorship is the easiest and the single most powerful way they can get great deals on their student loans.

We’re making the world a fairer better place at the same time by rewarding positive behavior and making credit scores a thing of the past. We develop and implement technology solutions to improve upon credit models used by student loan lenders. Our unique ability to understand students credit history better, using our algorithms that analyze unconventional signals separating them out from the noise and arriving at valuable insights has allowed us to empower students, who would otherwise have been stuck with bad student loans, by getting them great terms that reward them for their positive behavior. Rather than focusing on traditional FICO credit scores, which we feel create a very unfair playing field, as traditional scores are inadequate when judging a student's future potential. Especially if the students upbringing has been unconventional or challenging. Ultimately, we enable our clients to get past the barriers to entry which would keep them from their true earning potential and career success by making them focus on paying off onerous student loan payments in the short term. Our ability to score and de-risk student profiles makes it so that students can get lower monthly payments and better repayment terms, with our sponsorship students are able to get the same deals as though they have a perfect credit score. Even when that may not be the case in the traditional sense.
