The Ascent Program for Funding Education (Ascent) is built around one guiding principle above all others: Your student loan should expand your possibilities, not limit them. That’s why Ascent uses broad credit tiers to offer students more opportunities for approval. We have been working collaboratively in the student loan industry for more than a decade – so we have access to a great amount of data and utilize it to constantly evolve our loan program to meet your specific needs. You’ll benefit right from the start with a fast eligibility screening process. Once you’ve applied and been conditionally pre-approved, you can choose from flexible repayment plans. Plus, you’ll have real-time access to all your loan information and documents online.
