SALT is the new brainchild from American Student Assistance (ASA)—one of the most respected nonprofits for over 50 years. We manage a portfolio of 1.4 million college student borrowers, and we’re proud to say that 94 percent of these loans are in good standing. In fact, 4 years in a row we’ve beaten the national cohort default rate by 54 percent. As one of the leaders in student debt management, we’ve taken our knowledge of what works and rolled it into one powerful program to help students manage debt and gain financial skills for life. See what SALT can do for your school.
