SoFi and Edmit Partner to Help Next Generation of College Students Get Their Money Right
The days of poring over a dense Barron’s catalog of colleges and universities to find the right school are gone. Today, we announced a new partnership with Edmit , the company that helps families make smarter financial decisions about college, to set up college-bound students and their families with the tools and resources needed to help simplify the college selection and financial aid process.
SoFi members will now have complimentary access to Edmit Plus, which considers a student’s academic merits and family finances to provide data-driven recommendations on college affordability. Edmit Plus includes personalized scholarship and merit estimates, industry-leading tools for college financial planning, and salary estimates based on profile and major.
With this partnership, we want to help students get a head start on college financial aid planning and understand early on the significance of taking out a responsible amount of debt for college.
Nowadays, students have many resources when it comes to choosing a college, but the process can be overwhelming and stressful with so many factors to weigh. We are committed to helping our members make informed decisions on where to attend college and ways to finance the journey.
So how does it work? Once logged in to your SoFi account, members can click the Edmit member benefit card at the top of the page and get redirected to Edmit’s website where you can sign up for complimentary access to Edmit Plus. For more information, visit www.sofi.com/edmit.
