About U‑fi

Our mission is helping students and recent graduates reach their educational goals and make smart financial decisions.

More than 40 million Americans are burdened by student loan debt. Monthly payments can often feel unmanageable to recent grads or even those who have been out of school for a while. Or sometimes it’s just as much of a burden to find the money to cover education costs when federal loans have been exhausted.

So we decided it was time to help.

As a student loan originator and servicer, Nelnet wanted to partner with leading banks and financial institutions to offer low-cost graduate and undergraduate private student loans, student loan refinancing options, and financial wellness resources that are simple, easy to understand, and accessible.

The result is U-fi, a partnership built on Nelnet’s solid foundation of more than 35 years of student loan expertise and dedication to student success. With low interest rates and features like cosigner release options, interest rate discounts, and cash back rewards, our lender partners make paying for school as painless as possible.
