We take pride in the measures we take in securing the personal information of all of our borrowers.

With the rise of an ever evolving and accessible Internet, more rigorous and robust security measures must also be implemented. Recently, Federal Student Aid, a division of the Department of Education, has announced that they are replacing their antiquated 4-digit PIN access with more secure and reliable means. This new system uses a created username and password, rather than using personal information as a login. This change is very similar to what banks have started utilizing as well, as a PIN number by itself does not provide enough security for today’s smart consumer.

ASLC is welcoming this change of modernization by implementing their own update that will also utilize a username and password as opposed to a PIN number. By becoming early adopters, ASLC hopes to showcase how consumer security is of the utmost importance for ASLC. ASLC takes pride in the measures they take in securing the personal information of all of their borrowers.

The use of a password is more advantageous than a PIN in that it must meet certain character lengths. ASLC is also recommending that the password contains a combination of upper-case, lower-case, numerical, and symbolic characters to strengthen its integrity. Remember, never give out personal passwords to anyone, and make sure that the password that you create is not something that can be guessed easily by others.

ASLC keeps the consumer at the forefront of their mind with all of their policies and updates. ASLC hopes that this update will keep to their tradition of service, dedication, privacy, and security. In doing so, ASLC knows that they will be bringing in change that will help give the consumer peace of mind.
