About Student Loan Hero

Student Loan Hero, a LendingTree® company, was founded to help student loan borrowers organize, manage, and repay their student loan debt. We understand that every student loan borrower is in a different financial situation and no “one-size-fits-all” solution is possible. Our goal is to help student loan borrowers understand their student loans and make smarter, more informed repayment decisions.

Student Loan Hero was founded in 2012 by Andy Josuweit and was acquired by LendingTree in 2018.

How Student Loan Hero can help:

  • Sync both your private and federal student loans in one centralized location

  • Provide an in-depth student loan summary and financial analysis

  • Repayment plans designed to fit your financial situation

  • Advice on both federal and private loan repayment options

Our advice

Our expert editorial staff always puts you first. We’re here to give you honest, unbiased advice. We know that everyone is different — different goals, values, and financial situations.

The information we share reflects that there’s not just one right answer and there’s no universal way to do things. For instance, we think student loan refinancing can help a lot of people, but if it’s not a good idea for your situation — we’ll tell you that.

In fact, our favorite thing to hear is that we helped you learn, grow, and find your own way forward. We are student loan experts, but you’re the only real expert on yourself, your life, and your finances.

Security and privacy

We take your security seriously. We follow best security practices to protect your personal data. You can learn more about our security protections here.

We have never sold or rented user data or information. It's simply not part of our business model. You can read more about our privacy policy here.

Our promise to you

Student Loan Hero is on a mission to inspire and guide you toward financial health. We promise to always put you first. We want you to have hope in your financial future instead of fearing it. We offer uncomplicated financial advice so that you can conquer your student loans — and all of your important financial goals.
