PREVENTION is the key to managing CDRs
Our founder was the first to develop the concept of mentoring, then guiding students through the student loan repayment process. Since then, through Champion College Solutions, we have continued to evolve our signature processes to reach students at critical points during the student loan repayment cycle—not JUST delinquent borrowers.
Many companies have attempted to emulate our highly successful programs, but don’t get burned by companies that only appear to be less expensive until you add in ALL the extra fees!
