Stephens College

Private Lending for Higher Education

Welcome to FastChoice

In an effort to help students and parents start the search for an alternative loan lender and make informed decisions, the Stephens College Financial Aid Office, in a formal review process, annually reviews loan products from various lenders. A list of criteria is formed and the office of financial aid seeks out loan products that follow this criteria which is intended to be in the best interest of our students. Many factors are used to evaluate each loan product and lender. You are not required to select a lender from the link below. You are free to choose any lender and loan product you feel best suits your needs. Application processing will not be delayed unnecessarily if you choose a lender not presented. Stephens College adheres to a strict code of conduct regarding lenders. We are prohibited from accepting any financial or other benefits in exchange for displaying lenders and loan options in FASTChoice. Prohibited activities include: receiving compensation to serve on any lender board of directors or advisory boards; accepting gifts including trips, meals, and entertainment; allowing lenders to staff our institution's financial aid office; allowing lenders to place our institution's name or logo on any of their products; and owning of lenders' stock (for college officials who make financial decisions for our institution).
