ONLY for full-time Juniors, Seniors & Graduate Students*
The Ascent Independent loan is built around one guiding principle: Student loans should expand possibilities, not limit them. Ascent Independent, engineered by Goal Structured Solutions, Inc. (GS2), is a non-cosigned loan that gives domestic undergraduate and graduate students at eligible schools more opportunities to qualify for a loan, in their own name. We consider several factors which may include: creditworthiness, school, program, graduation date, major, cost of attendance, and other factors that could allow for students to obtain a loan in their own name without a cosigner. (*See additional eligibility requirements below.)
It’s easy to get started!
Schools can easily add Ascent Independent to their school profile online through their ELM Select or Great Lakes FASTChoice™ account.
