Salt has my back: I explain the repayment process to students, hand them information about Salt, and I’m confident that our students will find the best solution for them. Salt has really helped our students overcome the fears and worries about borrowing for college.”

“Having a large population of low income, first-generation students who come from families that know little to nothing about financial literacy, I am excited to be involved with bringing and implementing the Salt program on our campus. Salt provides a modern approach to financial literacy in multiple formats, which appeals to a broad base of our student population.”
