Share |

The National Council of Higher Education Resources (NCHER) is the nation’s oldest and largest national trade association that represents higher education service agencies who help families and students develop, pay for, and attain their educational goals so they can pursue meaningful and rewarding work and become contributing members of society. Our members include student loan servicers, guaranty agencies, lenders, secondary markets, private collection agencies, schools, and others that administer federal, state, and private loan and grant programs. Many of our members, including state agencies and state-designated authorities, also provide higher education awareness, access, outreach, loan default prevention, and financial literacy programs.

Membership Services

NCHER supports 115 member organizations on public policy initiatives within the legislative and executive branches of the federal government. The organization brings together the higher education community to improve legislation and regulations to strengthen all federal and private student loan programs through the involvement with Congress, the Executive Branch, and other associations and organizations engaged in student loan financing and policy. Its members work hard to inform students and families about the availability of higher education financing and promote cost effective methods to ensure open access to postsecondary education.
