Sallie Mae was a fairly simple process when applying for my loan, and the automatic payments I set up has yielded a smooth payback process.

I used Sallie Mae when my son reached his maximum loan amount from Federal Student loans. It's a great alternative for students and parents when other avenues are closed. I am grateful and I appreciate that Sallie Mae was able to assist us.

I needed extra financial help for additional college courses and I turned to Sallie Mae when I was informed I reached my limit on funds available from government student loans. The online application process was easy, straight forward and the approval turn around time was quick. Thank you!

There are pros and cons to loans in general. However, Sallie Mae was very understanding when I needed a reduction in monthly payment amount due to financial difficulties.

Michael S.

Always easy to work with. When every other part of school is hectic, you guys make the process easy.

Sallie Mae helped with funds for my sons! Without those funds it would have been difficult for them to attend college and obtain their degrees. Both are now living their own lives and are doing great!

footnote Borrow responsibly
We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.
