Invested in your success
The amount you end up paying for your education is determined by the success you achieve after graduation
Calculate & Compare
Calculate your payment schedule and see how an ISA compares to a private student loan.
What is an ISA?
Instead of loans, edly offers ISAs – or Income Share Agreements. With ISAs, you only pay for your tuition once you land your first well-paying job. Payments adjust with your income and are designed to be affordable.
Is an ISA right for me?
Many existing education financing options create an unfair burden for students. ISAs ensure that if you do not succeed up to a certain level, your payment amount is less or zero.
How are ISAs different?
as compared to traditional student loans
Edly ISA Financing
Traditional School Loan
Payment amounts adjust with your income. If you lose your job or start earning below the minimum income threshold, payments are paused.
Fixed payment amounts (including interest) mean you have to pay in full regardless of what you may earn.
No Interest accrual
Payments are based on a fixed percentage of your income so that you never pay more than you can afford.
Failure to make monthly payments – regardless of your employment status – can increase outstanding debt.
Never pay more than a defined multiple, typically 1.5-2.5x the amount of tuition funded.
No Defined Maximum
Students can end up paying well above the amount you owe with an ISA.
No credit score
Historical school data drives ISA contract terms, not your credit history.
Credit scores required
FICO scores and co-signers determine your access to loans, and interest rates.
Once you reach the end of the payment window, you don’t owe any further payments regardless of how much you’ve paid.
Extends if unpaid
Loans have longer payment windows which get even longer with accrued interest.
Edly offers an alternative to student loans
that’s designed to be more affordable and
accessible for students.

If life throws you lemons, your ISA payments are put on hold.
