A Year In Review, A Look Ahead

We just celebrated the one-year anniversary of our name change from Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation to Ascendium Education Solutions, we have a lot to be proud of and thankful for.

In the most recent fiscal year: prevented 1.35 million student loans from defaulting, totaling $13.3 billion
  • Partnered with more than 530 customers to improve student success.
  • In < 12 months, our Cohort Catalyst expert default prevention and loan rehabilitation team achieved significant CDR reductions and ROI increases for school customers.
  • Our College Cost Meter student debt letter tool sent out 1,000,000+ emails and supports 100s of schools nationwide.
  • For the third year in a row, GradReady's financial wellness curriculum made LendEDU's top 50 financial literacy literacy programs supporting numerous colleges and universities across the U.S. 
  • SmartSessions' higher education training delivered 79 sessions to over 4,400 attendees and maintained its place as a valuable resource for financial aid professionals.

The Attigo team remains highly devoted to you and your students. Being part of a nonprofit, our drive is unique. It's rooted in our belief that higher education has the power to help people reach their true potential. And in that vein, we're super excited with what we'll be sharing in 2020. Although I'm sworn to secrecy, here's a small taste of what's to come:

  • Default prevention product enhancements with powerful analysis tools to help even more students than ever
  • Intelligent research and resources (reflecting student sentiments, school successes, etc.) Coming Soon
  • Growing our nationwide conference presence to deliver more face-to-face opportunities to learn how we can solve student success challenges and drive persistence and completion
  • Expanding our GradReady curriculum to provide holistic support for student success

I'm incredibly proud of my team's accomplishments over the past year and am excited to share what's coming soon.

As always, in gratitude for your trust in us,

Beth Erickson
Vice President Repayment Solutions
