About

college gradsIt’s no secret, college is expensive and determining how a student is going to pay for it is overwhelming. We’re here to help.

iHELP offers private student loans to assist college-bound students in filling the gap, as well as consolidation options for student loans upon graduation. Our customers appreciate our easy online application, transparent terms and the personal attention they receive every step of the way.

For many of our customers, they’re taking on private-student loans or student loan consolidation for the first time, so we understand there’s lots of questions along the way. iHELP is committed to helping you and your family make responsible, informed decisions about plans for higher education. We’ll be the first to tell college-bounds students to exhaust all the free or low-cost money they have access to, including grants, scholarships and federal aid, before pursuing private student loans for college.

Our college financing blog is a great resource for families taking on college prep as well as recent college grads taking on the real world. You’ll find blog posts and downloadable resources covering topics from what to bring to the dorms for your freshmen year, to getting (and understanding) federal financial aid, to nailing your job interview for your first job.
