LendingTree Expands Product Offering To Include Student Loan Shopping Experience

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LendingTree has moved into the student loan category, launching a new student loan shopping experience for private student loans.  

This is the latest effort in a growing series of product initiatives that LendingTree has recently launched.  Others include reverse mortgages, home equity, personal loans, and a new mobile app.

Through LendingTree's student loan shopping experience, students or their parents can compare private student loan offers that are customized  to the their requested loan amount and school.  The borrower can then compare loan features including APR range, loan terms, total borrowing costs and monthly payments to find the loan option that best fits their needs. Once they have made a selection, they are then directed to the full application on the lender's site.

"We are on a mission to help students and their parents become better, more empowered borrowers when it comes time to seek financial aid for school," said Tamara Kotronis, SVP & GM, Education.  "This experience affords them the opportunity to shop and compare loan offers side-by-side in a consistent manner, and truly find the best fit for their needs."

According to the College Board, private student loans accounted for 39 percent of undergraduates' funding and 64 percent of graduate students' funding in 2012-13, with total education borrowing amounting to over $110 billion. Private student loans help to bridge the gap between college tuition and federal financial aid. Typically, private student loan funds are available earlier than Federal loans and can help fund graduate school when Pell grants aren't an option. Private student loan rates are dependent on one's credit profile and may require a co-signer.
