About Ascent Funding Ascent has one guiding principle: student loans should expand possibilities, not limit them. That’s why Ascent has created a new private student loan model that gives students more opportunities to qualify for a loan, with or without a co-signer, to secure the funding needed to cover tuition and living costs. For eligible junior, senior and graduate students without a co-signer, Ascent uses broader credit levels and takes into account creditworthiness, school, date of graduation, major, cost of attendance and other factors. Ascent promotes transparency and financial well-being by integrating financial literacy into the application process, upholding the idea that education is an investment where students and families must understand return on investment versus cost. Ascent also offers benefits and resources that prepare students and families for financial success.
