Ascent Independent: NEW for Academic Year 2017/2018
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 designed for your Juniors, Seniors and Graduate Students who do not have a cosigner. Ascent Independent gives domestic undergraduate and graduate students at eligible schools 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. Note: Because the Ascent Independent loan is available to students without any reliance on cosigners and considers several factors, processing times may be longer and loan amounts may be significantly lower than the loan amount requested.
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.
