Find out why a student loan lender's reputation matters
Many student lenders have come and gone from the student loan market over the years. For more than 25 years, Citizens Bank has been a reputable bank demonstrating an unwavering commitment to supporting the American dream, by serving the borrowing needs of students and their families.
Why? Because we've always believed that making education affordable and within reach of a wide portion of the population is a vital part of our larger commitment to the communities we serve.
Along with that quarter-century-plus track record of credibility and service to students, Citizens Bank has developed a network of close relationships with college financial aid offices and other professionals in the areas in which we do business. And our customers profit from the deep expertise we've developed as a student loan lender over those many years, expertise we leverage on behalf of our clients.
Borrowing from reputable banks and other financial institutions with solid lender reputations has never been more important. In recent years, federal regulators, consumer advocates, media outlets and others have documented how widespread student loan scams have become. These scams can lead to wasting money on services of little value. But they can also result in more serious problems, such as identity theft.
At Citizens Bank, we are committed to building early awareness of your financial commitments to prepare for future college expenses. We realize that helpful financial aid tools, such as our scholarship search tool and financial literacy information, all further build up our reputation.
