About Us

It takes all of us—schools, lenders, and other agencies—working together as a team to help students and their families pay for higher education. Think of ScholarNet® as a network that connects us and delivers streamlined financial aid.

Why We’ve Succeeded

Since 1999, ScholarNet and FastChoice™ have been securely automating private loan selection, counseling, certification, and disbursement. Hundreds of schools and lenders have been drawn to our innovative technology and technical expertise—and stayed for the outstanding service and customer support provided by our team.

We make it easy to get started and set up our solutions so that, however your office works, ScholarNet works with you. The end result is private loan processing on auto-pilot. Our representatives know your needs may change, so we check in annually to make tweaks to the way you use our solutions.

Why We’re Building a Forum

Sharing what we’ve learned about education financing with each other helps us all do better. MyScholarNet.com brings together people, resources, and solutions that help us all solve common challenges we share.
