How it Works

We facilitate upfront funding

Stride facilitates upfront financing for talented students, disbursed directly to their institution.

Graduates join your company

Upon graduation, employer-screened and accepted students launch their career as a full-time employee.

You repay loans for retained employees

Repay Stride only while employee is retained and performing (if employee leaves, obligation moves to them).*

A win-win-win solution

Our Employer Sponsored Loan programs connect employers, training programs, and talent early — with up to 3 years retention on the backend.

Here's how our solution benefits everyone:
