Positively Affecting Repayment
At American Student Assistance® (ASA), we measure our success as a nonprofit, public purpose organization by our impact on borrowers.
National data reinforce our success:
- Reinsurance trigger rates represent the number of loans that default in a fiscal year as a percentage of the number of loans in repayment in that same fiscal year. ASA’s is consistently below the national average.
- Cohort default rates (CDRs) measure students who default within 3 years of entering repayment. Until 2011, the CDR was measured for a 2-year period. ASA maintains one of the lowest rates and has helped schools lower their CDRs.
