Student Loan Counseling


We hear comments like this every day:

  • I can’t afford to pay my student loans!
  • Which student loan repayment option is best for me?
  • Student loans are very confusing.

It’s true --- student loans can be very confusing.  There’s no shame in asking for help.

GreenPath is here to help you explore your student loan repayment options so you can make an informed decision on which repayment option is best for you.

A certified, professional advisor will help you:

  • Access your federal student loan information through the National Student Loan Data System.
  • Contact your loan servicer(s).
  • Understand your student loan repayment options, and the pros and cons of each.
  • Develop a customized action plan.

We can help you look for ways to improve cash flow and manage your living expenses.  If you’re delinquent on your student loans, we’ll help you develop a plan for resolving the delinquency.  If you have defaulted on your student loans, we’ll help you develop a plan for curing the default. 

Real Help From a Non-Profit You Can Trust

For-profit student loan “counseling” organizations advertise heavily on TV and radio.  Rather than helping borrowers find the best repayment option, the majority of these companies charge hundreds of dollars to simply connect borrowers to their servicer to consolidate loans.  The free "counseling" they offer is nothing more than screening to see if the loans qualify for consolidation.

GreenPath's student loan counseling service is different.  We'll help you find the debt repayment option that is best for you.  Service is by phone.  There is a $150 cost for student loan counseling, which is payable at the end of the session.

Not sure if this service is right for you?  Give us a call at 855-400-3718 to learn more about how we may be able to help you.
