SLM Corporation, more commonly known as Sallie Mae, is the nation's leading
saving, planning and paying for education company. For 43 years, we have made a
difference in students' and families' lives, helping more than 34 million
Americans pay for college. We recognize there is no single way to achieve this
task, so we provide a range of products to help families, whether college is a
long way off or right around the corner. We promote responsible financial habits
that help our customers dream, invest and succeed.
Our primary business is to originate and service Private Education Loans we make
to students and their families. We use "Private Education Loans" to mean
education loans to students or their families that are not made, insured or
guaranteed by any state or federal government. We also operate a consumer
savings network that provides financial rewards on everyday purchases to help
families save for college.
