Analyzing our own data from 2020, LendEDU highlighted private student loan marketplace trends like the average applied credit score vs. the average approved credit score. This data was then compared to the previous four years.

Many or all of the companies featured provide compensation to LendEDU. These commissions are how we maintain our free service for consumers. Compensation, along with hours of in-depth editorial research, determines where & how companies appear on our site.
