Ascent Student Loans are built around one guiding principle above all others: Student loans should expand your possibilities, not limit them. That’s why Ascent gives students more opportunities to qualify for a loan in their own name. We consider several factors including: creditworthiness, school, program, graduation date, major, cost of attendance and other factors. We have been working collaboratively in the student loan industry for more than a decade and constantly evolve our loan program to the specific needs of students and schools. Ascent also offers financial literacy to help students and their families better understand their finances and borrow responsibly. To ensure the best possible experience for our customers, clients and schools, we have a wide network of partners.
