Helping families plan & pay for college

Education Finance Council (EFC) is the national trade association representing nonprofit and state-based higher education finance organizations. All EFC Members, as public-purpose organizations, strive to increase college access, success, and affordability in their states and nationwide, operating as supplemental loan originators and loan servicers while providing a wide array of college access and student success services and resources. In 2016, EFC Members directly worked with over 2.5 million families to help them successfully plan, save, and pay for college.

EFC Members, who are intimately involved with their communities, have the knowledge necessary to serve the unique needs of their communities and states, and work to ensure that all families — especially middle-income borrowers and first-generation or low-income students with no family experience in the intricacies of education financing — are provided the tools and guidance they need to choose the best-fit school, borrow appropriately, complete their degree, maximize their earning potential, and successfully repay their loans.
