Robust career support
From networking and workshops to exclusive job postings, we offer a host of wrap-around services to ensure our students' best outcomes. Our ISAs are uniquely designed to support career paths in healthcare, specifically for students in Physician Assistant programs, and unlike traditional student loan providers, we provide individualized attention to each student to ensure they get both an affordable education and the soft skills necessary to navigate their future.
Physician Assistants play a critical role in the success of our healthcare system by granting patients peace of mind when they need help. When it comes to financing your Physician Assistant program, the peace of mind of never having to pay more than you can afford is embedded in an ISAs DNA—we go a step further by instituting payment caps and minimum income thresholds to make sure you only pay when you can, and you're never penalized for your success. In addition to a 3-month grace period after graduation, you will never make a payment when you make less than the minimum income threshold or repay more than 2x the original Funding Amount.
Focused on your future
Unlike traditional student lenders, Stride looks at where you’re going, not where you’ve been. We provide rates based on the Physician Assistant degree program you’re pursuing, not your current earnings or ability to find a co-signer. We don’t use FICO scores, and only look at your credit history to make sure your other obligations are manageable, because at the end of the day, we want to make sure you succeed! Stride is clearly the best low cost way for students within two years of graduating to fund their education! Rethink how you pay for school and get funded today!
