Meet Sallie Mae
Higher education is a stepping-stone to a better life. Even during challenging economic times, a college diploma or professional certificate is a key to opportunity.
At Sallie Mae, we’re proud to have helped more than 30 million Americans save, plan, and pay for the education that can offer them that key. It’s a responsibility that we do not take lightly. In our 40 years we have developed responsible education loans and innovative programs to help families start saving for college.
For those who need help paying for college, we encourage responsible borrowing. Use grants and scholarships as well as savings and income before taking out loans to pay for college. If families need to borrow, we recommend they explore federal student loans and then consider a responsible private education loan to fill the gap.
As a company, we uphold strict standards of corporate governance and believe that transparency and ethical conduct best serve our customers and investors. Above all, we are committed to helping turn our customers’ dreams of education into reality.
