Concord, NH - New Hampshire Higher Education Loan Corporation (NHHELCO) is pleased to announce the launch of its new private student loan program which invites undergraduate and graduate students to "experience the nonprofit difference". Open to students nationwide, EDvestinU™ offers zero application fees, cosigner release and provides industry-low rates to eligible students. EDvestinU™ also reflects NHHELCO's long history of supporting students' postsecondary aspirations with affordable funding and value-added services such as college and career planning, FAFSA-filing support, scholarship opportunities and underwriting standards that encourage responsible borrowing. According to President & CEO, René Drouin, "NHHELCO has worked collaboratively with students, parents and financial aid professionals for decades. The result of this relationship has been extraordinary: nationally-low student loan default rates, best-in-class outreach programs and student-centered financial literacy programs." According to National Marketing Manager, Erin Hathaway, "Families and financial aid administrators can have confidence that recipients of the EDvestinU™ private student loan have been encouraged to apply for all federal student aid programs for which they are eligible and have demonstrated the capability to manage their loan obligations."
