Funding U Coronavirus Updates

To all of our customers, employees, investors, and visitors:

As we learn more about the COVID-19 virus and the response procedures recommended from health professionals and the government, we’ve begun a running dashboard for Everything You Need To Know About Student Loans and Coronavirus. For now, we simply aim to share a message of unity and commitment to do our best to help however we can.

We’re all in this together

First, while we may not be the first source you turn to for advice on how to deal with a pandemic, we just want to say that these are the moments when priorities become clear, and we’re no different. Right now, what’s most important for all of us is to focus on our collective safety and to not contribute to the accelerated spread of this virus.

To that end, at Funding U we are practicing social distancing and have tools and procedures in place to enable remote work with little to no downtime. We recommend you also heed the advice of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.

If you need help, we’re here
