What our customers are saying

"RISLA has been a great help in making my son's desire to attend his first choice college a reality. The application process is easy and processed in a timely fashion. We found the rates to be much lower than the parent loan the college offered. The customer service is always friendly and thorough. Using RISLA has been the right choice for our family." - Diane, Richmond, RI
