Star One Credit Union gives members special access to innovative college planning and selection tools via partnership with Student Choice and Edmit
Using Edmit's online software, Star One members can make smarter financial decisions about college and student debt and set students up for long-term success.
Star One Credit Union is committed to helping members achieve their financial goals—and paying for college is a significant investment for many students and their families. The new partnership with Edmit will provide Star One members access to valuable online tools and advice to maximize their college investment. Star One members are eligible to access Edmit Plus at no cost—typically a $99 value.
Edmit Plus offers members:
- Personalized Advice: Decision support tools and a human touch to help navigate this major emotional financial decision
- Learning Center: Extensive guides, lists, and resources related to paying for college
- Software: Personalized aid and scholarship estimates, calculators, and college recommendations
The information provided from Edmit allows a deeper dive into members' personalized 'financial fit scores.' Edmit will also create accurate estimates of the costs, potential earnings outcomes, and affordability associated with each college.
"We are thrilled that Star One has aligned with Edmit's mission of helping families as early as possible in the college search process to determine which schools offer them the best value, how to pay for it responsibly and set students up for success afterwards," said Sabrina Manville, co-founder of Edmit.
The partnership was made possible through Edmit's relationship with CU Student Choice, the leading provider of higher education financing solutions and corresponding financial education to America's credit unions.
"We're thrilled to bring this powerful resource to credit unions and their members," said Scott Patterson, President and CEO of Credit Union Student Choice.
