25 Companies That Help You Pay Off Student Loan Debt

Companies that'll ease your debt burden

About 48 million Americans have student loan debt. 

Yeah…it’s that bad. 

To tackle student loan debt, which is compounded by staggering interest rates, borrowers have resorted to taking on side-hustles, volunteering for charities in exchange for student loan assistance, and applying for federal programs, such as Public Service Loan Forgiveness.

Still, according to the Education Data Initiative, it takes the average borrower 20 years to pay off the debt, with women taking two years longer than men. While this length of time can vary based on several factors, including the amount borrowed and the interest rate, it’s clear that employer student loan repayment—a benefit that some companies offer to help employees reduce loan debt—is necessary for many women, who are more likely than men to attend college, obtain a graduate degree, and who currently own more than half of outstanding student loan debt in the U.S. 

More specifically, Black and Latina women, first-generation college graduates, and single mothers are most likely to experience the far-reaching effects of student loan debt. Long-term financial and emotional distress, racial and gender inequality, and an unrelenting gender pay gap—the fact that women, on average, earn less than men—make it especially difficult for marginalized women to not only pay off student loan debt, but also maintain a comfortable quality of life while doing so.

However, employers have increasingly started offering student loan assistance, which can help women proactively avoid accruing oppressive student loan debt and manage debt more effectively. A few of the most commonly offered programs include:

  • College savings: These programs help employees save money to go to college, so this is a popular option for individuals who want to enroll in college for the first time or return to college to finish a degree.

  • Refinancing: In this program, employers partner with companies that help you combine all of your student loans into one and get a lower interest rate. 

  • Tuition reimbursement: This option enables employers to repay you the money you’ve put toward your college education, usually after you’ve earned a passing grade in courses that are related to your job. 

  • Loan repayment: Perhaps one of the most popular options for student loan borrowers, loan repayment means your employer pays back a portion of your loan, usually by matching the payments you make up to a certain amount. 

25 companies that offer student loan repayment programs

Although student loan repayment is a popular benefit among job seekers with debt, only about 17 percent of employers with 500 or more employees offered payment assistance in 2021.

The idea that an employer will pay you and help pay off your student loan debt is exciting! However, it’s important to keep in mind that companies can change their benefits or compensation policies at any time, so these programs are all subject to change. In fact, LaborIQ by ThinkWhy—a labor market software company—recommends employers review their compensation policies every six months, so it’s important for you to review the company’s website and scan recent job postings to find the most up-to-date employee benefits information.
