    Simplify The Student Loan Process With College Ave Student Loans #CollegeAveLoans


    Did you graduate college with loans to pay off?

    Do you have kids in college?

    Are you currently enlisted?

    Do you have kids that will likely be in college soon? 

    I can say yes to a few of the above questions for sure! I suppose for me, I’m most concerned with figuring out how I’m going to pay for my three children and their college careers. Sure, we have younger kids (10, 8, and 2), but the next 7 years will likely fly by just as quickly than the previous 10 have. Natalie and Liam will be in college soon enough. Truthfully, it’s never too early to start thinking about (or worrying about) paying for it all.

    The process can be so daunting. Education is just so expensive now!!  It’s tough to take it all in and figure out what your best options are. There’s just so much to consider and so many places to turn to.

    College Ave Student Loans (CASL) is simplifying the student loan experience so students can get on with what matters most: preparing for a bright future. As an online marketplace lender with a sole focus on private student loans, CASL is using technology and deep industry expertise to connect families who need to cover education costs with lenders who can provide that funding. When federal loans, scholarships and grants aren’t enough, private loans are something families can consider to help fill that gap to pay for higher education costs.

    The thing I like most is that College Ave Student Loans really seems to just “get it.” They know that every family’s situation is unique.

    College Ave Student Loans wants to help families explore any and all options.

    While sorting through all of these options, College Ave Student Loans never wants it’s customers to borrow more than they should. I think that’s exactly how CASL is different than most.

    They offer a number of lending tools to help students and families make smart and informed lending decisions by understanding the total cost of borrowing and ways to save, including The College Ave Student Loans calculator. Plus, College Ave encourages decisions like making in-school payments and picking shorter loan terms by offering lower interest rates when customers make those choices (thus reducing the overall total cost of the loan). They are all about helping you out as best as they can. It’s pretty impressive.

    They even make the application process easy! College Ave offers a unique credit pre-qualification tool where, with three simple pieces of information (name, DOB, address), students and their parents can find out if their credit score qualifies for the loan, and what rates they can expect to see. This magic is all performed without having to fill out a full application or impacting your credit score. Hello!
