National Lending Associates, Inc. (NLA) in cooperation with Sterling Education Finance, LLC announced today that Lesley University will expand their financial aid options by offering the TuitionFlex SM payment program. The TuitionFlex Program offers two customizable tuition payment products which include TuitionEase™ (less than 12 months) and TuitionExtend™ (contracts greater than 12 to 120 months). These alternative financing options are designed to help ease the current financial burden on students and their families by extending their tuition payments over a pre-set period. “With limited private loan funding available, the TuitionFlex program is a great financial alternative for our students and their families,” said Scott Jewell, Director of Student Financial Services at Lesley University. “Along with partnering with Sterling Education Finance, the turnkey program has made implementation for our institution very easy.”
“NLA has once again partnered with Sterling Education Finance in order to provide Lesley University the TuitionFlex Program,” states Douglas Feist, Chief Executive Officer of NLA. “This allows both organizations the opportunity to assist the school in providing a financing option for paying for education during difficult economic times.”
“With private loans being increasingly difficult to secure, the TuitionFlex program offers a great alternative means of financing for families,” states Jennifer Wallace, Regional Vice President at Sterling Education Finance. “With institutions like Lesley University willing to go the extra mile for students, a win-win situation is created for all parties.”
