Ascent Student Loans



We believe education is about gaining knowledge and achieving dreams. It shouldn’t be about student loan debt. Ascent Student Loans is a private student loan program engineered by Goal Structured Solutions, Inc. (GS2), to build a new model for how students and their families pay for college.  Ascent provides access to higher education funding for an expanded population of students, while preserving the notion that an education is an investment where students and families should understand the return on their investment relative to the cost. Ascent encourages transparency and financial wellness by incorporating financial literacy into the application process.  To provide students with more opportunities to fund their education, Ascent utilizes broader credit tiers and considers several other factors.  Ascent offers competitive rates, flexible repayment plans, 1% cash back reward upon graduation, and access to free tools to set students and families up for financial success.  We offer customized loan products to meet the diverse needs of schools and their students. Loan products include Ascent Tuition (co-signed) and Ascent Independent (non co-signed for eligible Juniors, Seniors and Graduate Students).


ASCENT INDEPENDENT | Non-cosigned Student Loan 

The Ascent Independent loan is built around one guiding principle: Student loans should expand possibilities, not limit them. Ascent Independent is a non-cosigned loan designed for eligible Juniors, Seniors and Graduate Students who do NOT have a cosigner available. Ascent Independent considers more than just a credit score and current income to give domestic undergraduate and graduate students more opportunities to pay for school.  We consider several factors which may include: loan product, other financial aid, creditworthiness, school, program, graduation date, major, cost of attendance and other factors. Click here to see the loan eligibility requirements.

ASCENT TUITION | Cosigned Student Loan 

Every student’s situation is different, so we created the Ascent Tuition cosigned loan to help students with little to no credit history, utilizing a creditworthy cosigner. With the Ascent Tuition Student Loan, your school can help undergraduate and graduate students attain additional funding to pay for education related expenses.
