SAN MATEO, Calif.& BOSTON (PRWEB) April 5, 2007
The new Compare Student Loans tool instantly gathers and presents loan data from private lenders and provides them in an "easy-to-use" visual side-by-side comparison format, enabling consumers to compare and choose loans that best meet their needs. By providing a wide choice of lenders, rather than an offer from a single financial institution, TuitionCoach maintains its high standards of transparency and independent guidance. TuitionCoach users will find the Compare Student Loans tool on their MyTuitionCoach page upon logging in.
"The process is simple to use and consumer friendly. Fashioned with a familiar look and feel, much like that of an 'Orbitz tool,' loans are arrayed so consumers can pick the loan that works best for them," said Dr. Wrubel, co-founder and educational expert for TuitionCoach. "We have found that online consumers are instantly drawn to any tool that simply puts the facts in front of people and lets them make decisions on their own. The Compare Student Loans tool fills that role in the college loan marketplace."
"Students and families are confused by the whole process of applying to college, applying for financial aid, making sense of the components of aid - and they're often most confused by the fragmented landscape of education loan options," said Kevin Walker, president and CEO of SimpleTuition. "TuitionCoach - like SimpleTuition - is dedicated to bringing transparency and user-friendliness to the paying-for-college process. And that makes for a great partnership: for SimpleTuition, TuitionCoach, and the families who use our services. TuitionCoach's loan comparison engine will be a powerful tool for parents and students."
