Our Story
About SLL

The StudentLoanList was designed so that donors who want to contribute a payment toward a students education loan can do so anonymously and with the knowledge that  their payment will be applied toward the individual students school loan debt.
While pursuing her Bachelors Degree (Experimental Psychology)  at the University of Texas, Allyson Dalley of Fort Worth, Texas took out a small student loan. Usually very conservative with her finances, Allyson was surprised at how easy it was to obtain the money and she felt  guilty and ashamed about the debt. Her discomfort over borrowing money soon disappeared as she made friends with other students and learned that many had loans in much greater amounts... $25,000, $50,000 and more. As Allyson went on to obtain her Masters  in Counseling Psychology, she realized that financing education by obtaining loans was the norm, and students without debt were in the minority.

Allyson came up with the idea for the StudentLoanList and had been thinking about it for several months when the US debt crisis occurred during the summer of 2011. She knew it was time to move forward with her idea. Crowdfunding works in other areas, why not student loan debt? 

Potential donors can scroll thru the listing of students based on search criteria such as the school attended, major field of study, amount of debt and other items.

Many student loans that go into default become the burden of the United States Government, so making payments on the student loans (or paying loans off) may even help improve the bottom line of the United States budget.

The StudentLoanList was officially launched during December of 2011 and students were asking about signing up even before the site was officially announced.

If you have any questions about the StudentLoanList, please let Allyson know. Her email is Allyson@studentloanlist.com. Allyson personally verifies the debt of each student registered on the StudentLoanList.    You can also reach her by phone at  817-807-2507
