What is a student loan consultant?
When we say we are financial aid and student loan repayment consultants, many people assume we work for a college financial aid office, bank, or other outside organization.
But our work is completely independent. As student loan repayment consultants, we work one-on-one with student loan borrowers to set up a repayment schedule that allows them to manage their debt.
Independent, objective student loan advice
Since we’re not employed by any universities or lenders, we don’t steer students in a particular direction based on any interests but their own.
We work with the borrower’s individual financial situation to help them get on the best repayment plan for their lifestyle and future and provide advice on managing their debt.
And since we’re concerned with helping students avoid taking out loans in the first place, we also work with college-bound students and families to help them find affordable schools that will minimize their debt.
