Earnest (company)

Earnest was founded in 2013 on the belief that getting a loan shouldn't be so difficult for financially responsible people. We are bringing back the trust that was previously lost in financial systems. We look beyond a credit score, instead of analyzing a person's full education, employment, and financial profile to reward financially responsible people with better rates than traditional lenders. For recent college graduates, repaying student loans can be a stressful financial burden as you embark on your career. This is why Earnest offers student loan refinancing with low-interest rates and zero fees. Refinancing your student loans with Earnest gives you the option to choose a repayment plan that fits your budget and the option to choose between a variable or fixed interest rates. We also offer extras like the ability to skip a payment, change your payment amount and date, and the ability to repay your loan faster without penalties. Navigating loans to pay for school can be a long and confusing process. This outdated process inspired us to create a new private student loan product, with new tools to simplify every step of the application and approval process. Led with technology, data, and design to engineer a more human application experience, Earnest's private student loans incorporate an innovative eligibility check, cosigner invite, ability to customize your loan, and a 9-month grace period. We have no fees and offer flexible repayment options and extras like skip a payment.
