Welcome to the launch of our company, The Student Loan Calculator. What a journey it has been so far launching our student loan marketplace. Over the past 8 months, there have been tons of learning and failing experiences as we have built this ecosystem. With dozens of pages added, over 10 lending partners working directly with us, and so much more planned to come as we move forward, we are officially ready for the launch of TheStudentLoanCalculator.com. In the coming weeks, you will see lots of great blog content, debt management tools, social media posts, advertising, and much, much more. We are very excited to help people on the journey of paying off their student loans or taking outsmart private student loans to finish that last semester of college. Student debt is rising at an alarming rate and we hope to be a huge resource to help those who are looking for it and educate those who truly need it.
Today, we are very happy to announce that we are launching our company’s website and our blog! We have partnered with some of the best student loans refinance lenders in the space and are eager to show off the competitive rates that you may be able to qualify for. Quite a few of the names listed below you will recognize, some of them you may not, but we are eager to get more partners added to our already awesome line up to help provide you with even more competitive refinancing offers. We also are very happy to announce they we have two very powerful calculator products that will accompany our student loan lenders. We have both a refinance and a consolidation calculator that will help you get a better idea of what you may be able to save by choosing to refinance or consolidate your student loans. These tools are completely free to use and will continuously be updated as we get new data, news, and other industry crucial information to provide to our users. We plan on rolling out a plethora of new tools to truly help you better understand your debt and find unique ways in which you can tackle and cut down on interest over the life of your loans.
As the initial idea of The Student Loan Calculator was hatched, we realized just how many people were affected by student loan debt. When you take a look at the numbers (you can see clearly on our home page here) that the student loan debt issue is not going away anytime soon. At the time of this blog post, there is currently over $1,473,013,729,784.97 in debt and it continues to rise. In fact, according to a recent study, student loan debt is increasing at almost $3,000 per second! Take some time to try and fathom that number for a moment. This brings us to the purpose of this website and how we plan on helping users moving forward:
Our mission is simple: to provide users with tools to help make managing their student loans easier and help some of them save money in the process. Many student loan borrowers could are be overpaying for their student loans due to high-interest rates. But this is not the only thing costing users thousands more on their student loans. There are also many programs in which users can qualify for student loan forgiveness depending on the verticle that they are in. Our platform is designed to be an unbiased student loan hub where users can research the different types of student loans, understand which loan will make the most sense for them, and allow parents to find out how they can help their kids pay for school and so much more. We have only just begun to help change the path of traditional student loan debt.
Where do we head from here? That’s a great question that many of you may be asking. We are focusing on providing you with the best lenders available to try and lower your interest rates on your current student loans, consolidate multiple loans into a singular loan, and even have options for private student loans should you need that little extra boost before you head into your final semester. While these products are all great and provide value to the users, we have more big plans coming soon. We have a goal to launch an app as well as a super intuitive ‘mint’ esk backend that will allow you to track your loan information all from one place. More to come on this late but needless to say we are very excited about the future!
Finally, we want to say thank you. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. We have been working on this project for many months now and everything is finally starting to fall into place. We look forward to continuing to serve this great community for many years to come. With the goal of being a huge hub of information for the student loan space, you can expect weekly content, videos, loan information and much much more.
