Sixup provides responsible, affordable college loans to high-achieving, low-income students with little or no credit history. The Sixup loan is designed to help underfunded students upgrade to, and graduate from, more selective four-year colleges. We fund the gap between available financial aid and total cost of attendance.
Despite federal aid and private scholarships, most students still have on average $5,000-$10,000 per year of incremental costs, and that's the gap that Sixup helps to cover. We enable students to upgrade to more selective 4-year colleges which often have higher graduation rates, higher median income after graduation and thus better individual outcomes.
