Partner With Us
The Institute of Student Loan Advisors™ (TISLA™) offers multiple partnership opportunities to schools, employers and associations who have constituencies concerned about their student debt.
According to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1 in 5 employees has taken time from work to deal with financial issues and 61 percent of human resources representatives state that personal finance issues negatively affect employee productivity. This isn’t just an issue for entry-level employees. Half of all student loan borrowers over the age of 30 and a quarter over 45.
From a college perspective, while there are multiple counseling opportunities offered students about their loans, it’s no secret that the effectiveness of the timing of these counseling sessions is suspect. In fact, according to a recent study, up to 40 percent of students don’t even recall receiving such counseling. Successful student loan management is about providing the right information to borrowers, at the right time. Because the “right time” is different for every student loan borrower, they need access to expert resources on a frequent basis, and from a trusted source.
Employers, colleges and associations can greatly help borrowers manage their student debt by providing access to these resources. Doing so can increase employee retention and job satisfaction, improve alumni relations and add significant value to association membership.
TISLA offers several customizable services and packages to help you provide these resources to your constituency in an affordable way.
- Live webinars that allow consumers to ask their own questions of experts
- Monthly blogs on topics including Public Service Loan Forgiveness, loan consolidation and how to choose the right repayment plan
- Live exit counseling
- Dedicated phone service
Providing these resources are also a good way to remind consumers that TISLA’s free one-on-one email counseling and dispute resolution is always available. Partnering with TISLA also helps support our mission of providing this fair, free, student loan advice.
