What is an Income Share Agreement? 

Income share agreements (ISAs) provide an alternative  financing source for students to attend and complete post-secondary studies. With an ISA, students receive education funding in exchange for a fixed percentage of the future earnings that their education helps them generate. There is no principal or interest payment obligation; students only make payments when they’re making money.

Our Partnerships

From professional service providers and colleges and universities to philanthropies, foundations, investors, we partner with organizations that share our commitment to supporting students and solving the student loan problem.
