Tapping Tech to Solve the Student Debt Crisis


The restart of student loan repayments creates unprecedented demand to support student borrowers. The system is already strained, with 43M+ students facing federal loan repayment and an 11% default rate. As EdTech continues to transform higher education, there is a critical need to provide financial aid support at scale for universities and servicers. Led by EdTech and Financial Aid experts, our workshop will simulate the experience of struggling borrowers – and demonstrate how tech solutions can ease the path to repayment.
