Great Lakes, USAFunds, NELA are now Ascendium

A Note for Borrowers

Please note that Ascendium Education Solutions (Ascendium) is our new name (since November of 2018) and replacing Great Lakes Higher Education Guarantee Corp (GLHEGC) (and as of January 1, 2019, its USAF and NELA affiliates). Therefore, if you have/had loans with GLHEGC, USAF or NELA, you will now see the name Ascendium on communications, on your credit report file, and on Treasury notices pertaining to an IRS offset. Rest assured that the actions now being performed under the Ascendium name are the same as they were under GLHEGC, USAF, and NELA. With regards to credit reporting, the Ascendium tradeline replaced those under GLHEGC, USAF, and NELA. The only difference is our name.
