SLM Corporation, more commonly known as Sallie Mae, is the nation's leading
saving, planning and paying for college company. For 44 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 make college happen.
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. Private Education Loans do not
include loans insured or guaranteed under the previously existing Federal Family
Education Loan program ("FFELP Loans").
