DePaulo explained that he hopes their participation in these panels will start a discussion about the private student loan industry and how it can grow and supply its customers with the best possible service.

According to LendEDU, there is more than $165 billion in outstanding private student loan debt as of 2016. The average PSL loan is for about $10,000, with 1.4 million students using a private loan each year. Private student lending is growing every year which opens the door for companies like College Ave.

College Ave Student Loans is a fintech lending company with a focus on private student loans and private student loan refinancing and consolidation. A part of their target market revolves around students who are struggling with private student loans; they offer refinancing to borrowers who can qualify for lower rates on their student loans.
