  • Students receive email and text reminders (when possible) before their payment is due, and after a payment is missed.

  • If students become past due, our customer service team contacts them continually by phone, mail, text, and email. This team is staffed with individuals who are well trained to work with past due students in getting their payments flowing again. They accomplish this without being rude or offensive; we rely on persistence and a “let’s work this out together” attitude while reminding the student why their education & credit are important to their future.

  • Following-up these calls with past due notices and delinquency letters maximizes the collection effort and maximizes collections. When these actions are performed by a national student financing company, the seriousness of the delinquency is brought to the attention of the student and their co-signer, and the importance of making payment now is emphasized
Frequent telephone calls to past due students and their co-buyers are made by live personnel and have been time proven as the best way to generate collections.
TFC does not outsource any customer support services. All management and servicing of student accounts and all related customer service and follow-up efforts are performed in TFC offices by our own professionally trained staff in New York and California.
Yes. Payment plans can be structured to have up to four tiers of different payment amounts and/or different interest rates in the same plan.
