IonTuition, APA’s newest member benefit, works to help you ease the financical burdens of student loan debt. By providing practical tools, support and information, IonTuition enables you to take control of your debt and your financial future.
APA is partnering with IonTuition because we understand how the issue of student debt is one that is crucial to the APA community. Ninety-one percent of PsyD students who graduate have student loan debt, with the median balance at $200,000 – that’s $125,000 greater than the average debt held by a typical PhD. Though you know it’s not possible to repossess a college education – you also know that not paying back student loans can have long-term detrimental effects to your financial health.
APA members can now access, at no additional cost, all of the benefits of IonTuition directly from their MyAPA account. Simply log in and enjoy access to:
Compare monthly payment options and find the payment plan that best fits your financial goals. Get expert one-on-one advice from IonTuition’s highly trained loan counselors. They’ll work directly with you, presenting options and providing focused advice you can use to deal with your unique circumstances. This is not a student loan marketplace. Instead IonTuition will work with you to find productive, long-term repayment options that take the stress out of student loan borrowing and repayment
Going back to school or trying to determine the best undergrad program for your child? There are a variety of schools and programs from across the country to pick from. With IonMatch, you can search programs by distance, cost, field of study, size, and more – allowing you to determine the school that best fits your budget and where to get the best long-term return on your education investment.
Student loans are only one part of the total debt picture. Credit cards, mortgages, car loans, and simple living expenses tend to take priority over student loans for many people. Those struggling to pay their student loans are often struggling with finances elsewhere. Being financially literate is a major step toward being able to gain control of all of your total debt. Explore the latest financial content provided in IonLearn’s glossary, videos, and modules to educate yourself and get additional tips toward your overall financial stability and navigate away from debt.
