Deciding to pursue a higher education is one of the biggest decisions (and investments) you will ever make. First you have to find the best college to attend. And just when you decide on that, you’re faced with more big decisions. Should you take out student loans? How much? What should you major in? Will you get a positive return on your education investment? What job should you take? Will your employer offer student loan benefits?

From that initial decision to your last student loan payment, iontuition’s got your back. We understand that paying for college can be difficult and confusing. Our goal is to simplify the entire student loan process by providing you with an innovative collection of tools – all within the same website.

Here is how iontuition helps you every step of the way:

Decide on a college

Find a college that best fits your situation. ionMatch allows you to compare colleges and programs by anticipated cost and expected salary, giving you the clearest forecast of what your return on investment will be. We show you how much you will need to fund your education, and if it involves taking out student loans, you’ll see how much your student loan payment could be after you graduate compared to estimated starting salary.

Fund your education

Sometimes when you’re in school, it’s easy to forget about your finances, especially your student loans. Our ionManage tool makes it easy to see how much money you have borrowed, how much interest you’re being charged and who services your loans. Additional tools like ionLearn help you improve your personal finance knowledge.

Repay your student loans

Whether you earned a college degree or left school to pursue other ventures, you have to pay back your student loans. Our ionManage dashboard and expert student loan counselors make it easy to find a repayment plan that works for you. Our email, text or push notifications keep you informed about changes to your student loans, and even notify you when you have a payment due.

If you’re lucky, you’ll go on to work for a company that offers student loan benefits. And hey, we can even help with that! Our ionPay tool allows you to deduct student loan payments from your paycheck – it’s as easy as contributing to a 401(k) plan!

Regardless of what stage you’re at in the higher education life cycle, iontuition has your back.
