Stride Funding changed the course of my life. I struggled to get access to affordable funding to go to school without a cosigner, but Stride believed in my potential and funded my education.

I chose Stride because I wanted to feel like the company helping me pay for school was truly investing in me. I truly feel like the individuals on the team believe in me and my future, and want to help me achieve my goals.

The opportunity to do an ISA was appealing to me for a few reasons. It offered the ability to broaden my network outside of strictly my alumni network. You don’t get that support from any other lending company.

Lawrence, MBA

*There is no credit check required to receive a quote. If you choose to submit an application for funding, a hard credit pull will be performed at that time. There is no minimum FICO score, and your credit score or history isn't the main thing that decides your approval or denial, but your credit will be checked.
