How LRAPs Work

Ardeo’s LRAPs help institutions increase enrollment while giving students and families financial peace of mind. LRAPs make this powerful promise: If income after graduation is modest, a student’s LRAP award will help them repay their student loans. 

You send us a list of students you want to enroll with LRAPs. We reach out to your students and their families to educate them about the program.

Students accept their LRAP award and enroll at your university! You boost yield by giving your prospects the financial confidence they need to attend. You only pay for those who enroll and borrow.

We help your graduates repay their student loans. After graduation, we take it from there. You pay nothing more. Ardeo manages all assistance requests, and we answer any questions your students may have.
