Features of a Stride ISA
With an ISA, you pay a small, fixed percentage of your future earned income over a 5 year term following graduation. We look at where you’re going, not where you’ve been, so rates are based on your expected earnings based on your program of study. Payments tied to income give students confidence that payments remain affordable, no matter their earnings.
Because we only succeed when you do, we’re incentivized to help make your dreams a reality, which is why we provide career support, downside protection, a grace period, and a minimum income threshold to each student we fund. It’s time to rethink how you pay for school!
