OGSLP Offers SimpleTuition Loan Comparison Tool for Schools and Families

A simpler way to compare education loans is now available for Oklahoma students and families. Thanks to a partnership between the Oklahoma Guaranteed Student Loan Program (OGSLP) and SimpleTuition, schools have new options to help students navigate the lender selection process.

As a result of this new partnership, Oklahoma schools will have two new lender list options for students and families. Schools can direct students to a master OGSLP lender list or opt to have a customized lender list created. Both options allow students and families to compare education loans and loan providers.

“We’re excited about providing this tool to our school customers,” said Mary Mowdy, OGSLP Executive Director. “We feel it’s a helpful resource that empowers schools to simplify the loan selection process for students and parents who are seeking the best fit for their current circumstances and future plans,” she said.

Founded in 2005, SimpleTuition allows users to compare, analyze and apply for student loans. Search results can be sorted by a variety of factors, like monthly payment, total loan cost, number of payments, date of first payment or annual percentage rate, allowing users to compare loan options based on the criteria that are most important to them.
