TuitionU.com is an education finance network with a simple purpose: to provide students and their families access to a community of low-cost college financing sources through social networking, not-for-profit credit unions, traditional lenders, individual and corporate sponsors, and charitable donors.
Introduced in 2007, TuitionU.com combines traditional, peer and community lending solutions through a single gateway. Together, these resources can fill the gap that exists in financing education today. As it has grown the site has added information links, planning tools, expert advice, and college-related services to improve the planning process. It also introduced the industry’s first product rating and customer satisfaction feature, giving students and parents access to feedback directly from customers that have used the products. This helps borrowers make informed decisions and find alternatives that can satisfy their entire need.
