For students that graduate from your institution and make timely payments, SAGE Tuition Advantage waives 25% of the original principal balance, enticing them to remain enrolled and graduate.

According to a new study from the National Student Clearinghouse, “one third of all students transferred at least once within five years”1. Keeping students enrolled is a big priority for colleges and universities and National Education has the solution: SAGE Tuition Advantage – a low cost financing option for your students that replaces unfunded institutional aid.

SAGE Tuition Advantage offers 0% APR when combined with earned benefits to provide an attractive low-cost solution for families to realize their higher education goals. For students that graduate from your institution and make timely payments, SAGE Tuition Advantage waives 25% of the original principal balance, enticing them to remain enrolled and graduate. The program does not affect any of the school’s current revenue from other sources such as Federal Direct Loans, private loans or tuition payments made by the students and their families. The program simply gives your institution financial flexibility to manage unfunded aid and graduate more students.

Schools make no up front investment and benefit from partnering with a nationally recognized servicer to administer the program (National Education Servicing received ‘Exceptional Performer’ recognition from the Department of Education).
