Over the past 10 years we've helped
avoid default and its crippling consequences



Student loan defaults are damaging. Not only do they have severe consequences for students, but they can hurt a school's cohort default rate (CDR), reputation, and enrollment goals. That’s why we provide a default prevention and rehabilitation solution that drives student success to new heights.

Cohort Catalyst® empowers students through outreach, education, and counseling to help keep them on the road to success. It was built from the lessons we’ve learned by keeping millions of student loan borrowers out of default and helping those who have defaulted to successfully complete rehabilitation.

Proven Significant CDR Reduction

Cohort Catalyst achieved significant CDR reductions for the Wisconsin Technical College System. This system-wide, multi-pronged support is explored in our Default Prevention Services Case Study.
