Protect your borrowers and your campus against default with HigherEDGE®

February 17, 2015 · HigherEDGE Default Management Solutions · No Comments

HigherEDGE® Default Aversion Solutions

Like most institutions, colleges and universities buy coverage for all kinds of potential threats, including damage to property, breaches in data security, sickness affecting faculty and staff, and injury to the school's athletes. Student loan default is another area that can leave schools vulnerable, especially given the consequences of high rates. High cohort default rates (CDRs) can imperil a school's eligibility for Title IV, which can have a cascading effect — preventing students from applying for admission and even leading to school closure.
