ReliaMax Launches PharmD Private Student Loan Program to Close Pharmaceutical School Funding Gap

Posted on: 04 Oct 16

ReliaMax®, a leading private student loan platform-as-a service solution provider, announced today its PharmD private student loan program for participating universities offering a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree.

As an increasing number of universities offer PharmD programs to meet the need for 90,000 pharmacists, physicians and medical professionals by 20251 to treat an aging population increasingly suffering from chronic pain, there is an equally increasing number of students needing to secure an effective education financing solution.

Participating universities can help their students apply for private student loans by connecting with ReliaMax’s loan platform. The borrower can get 100% of all school certified educational costs up to the maximum loan program limits with favorable terms and conditions. Payments may be deferred during the in-school period and up to 48 months during Internship/Residency with a grace period after leaving school. ReliaMax launched this program with SouthEast Bank for universities who would like to offer PharmD private student loans.

“Universities that have recently began to offer PharmD degrees often have to wait a minimum of four years before students are eligible for certain types of federal aid, while the rising cost of education outstrips the aid these schools can offer,” said Michael VanErdewyk, CEO and Chairman of ReliaMax. “We launched this program to enable universities to offer their PharmD and potentially similar health professions students a way to meet their funding needs affordably and immediately, where one previously did not exist.”

This program demonstrates the breadth and flexibility of The ReliaMax Solution to meet the unique needs of lenders and schools. Comprised of five applications – Borrower Acquisition, Origination, Servicing, Insurance and Capital Markets – The ReliaMax Solution is a state-of-the-art turnkey cloud based solution that lenders and schools can tailor to meet their unique needs.
