While researching loan options for several of his 14 nieces and nephews, I thought there had to be a better way to find the best student loans. No site provided an “apples to apples” comparison of student loan deals. After in-depth industry research and discussions with financial aid professionals, Student Lending Analytics (SLA) was founded with one simple goal in mind: to find the best deals on student loans.

Based in Palo Alto, California, Student Lending Analytics is the standard for financial aid officers seeking an independent, objective and transparent lender selection process. Our clients include leading national public and private universities, colleges and community colleges who have benefited from SLA’s customized and analytical approach to finding the best lenders. SLA’s surveys and monthly newsletter Inside Student Lending serve a wide audience with cutting-edge research on trends in the student lending market.

Student Lending Analytics, LLC is a privately funded, California-based limited liability company. SLA is not affiliated with any bank, lender or other financial service firm serving the student lending marketplace. Our team is committed to the opportunities that education provides. As a symbol of our commitment to higher education, 10% of Student Lending Analytics' annual profits will be donated to Eastside Preparatory School, a school in East Palo Alto, California dedicated to opening new doors for students historically underrepresented in higher education.
