Tuition.io is the leading provider of student loan repayment assistance programs and financial wellness tools focused on helping employees manage the cost of higher education. We offer our services in two ways: 1) TIO administers employer-funded student loan contribution plans for their employees and 2) we offer a stand-alone Financial Wellness Platform to help all employees manage the cost of higher education. The Financial Wellness Platform includes content and decision support tools to assist with saving for college, applying for financial aid as well as optimizing the repayment of student loans given the unique goals and situation of each employee. We also offer online student loan coaching as well as a refinance marketplace for employees interested in refinancing their existing student loans.
The Tuition.io platform is the most flexible solution in the market, designed to be fully customizable to meet the needs of each client. This includes a comprehensive set of plan design options (e.g. eligibility rules, payment amounts, payment frequency, employee communications materials, etc.). Also, the Tuition.io platform is the only service in the market today that provides an employee with a full and real-time updated view of their existing student loan debt through its student loan linking and aggregation capabilities. Unlike competing services, this includes all types of student loan debt including Federal, Private, ParentPlus and GraduatePlus loan types. Finally, our service is 100% funded by employers and we do not receive revenue from the sale of any services to employees, unlike many other service providers whose primary business is to refinance student loans or to market other financial products to employees. While these alternative business models result in an inherent conflict of interest for competing service providers, Tuition.io’s mission is solely focused on helping employees make the best decisions possible regarding their student loan debt. This includes assistance in understanding eligibility rules and how to navigate public student loan forgiveness programs.

Public vs. Private: How Shortlister Gets Paid
|Shortlister Public Site
|Who can Access Shortlister?||Versions of the Shortlister app are available for employers and benefits consultants to access detailed information on service providers and issue RFPs.||Anyone can access the basic vendor data listed on the Shortlister public site, free of charge.|
|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|
|Do service providers pay to be listed?||No – Service providers can enroll on the Shortlister app for free.||No – Service Providers do not pay to be listed on the Shortlister public site.|
|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|
|Who provides reviews of service providers?||Reviews on Shortlister's app are collected from employers and consultants. Service providers are also able to collect reviews from their customers, once they are validated by Shortlister. When a user is logged into the Shortlister app, they can clearly see the source of the review.||Public site reviews are an aggregation of employer, consultant and provider-collected reviews. There is no way for public site visitors to differentiate the source of the review.|
|Do service providers see information and reviews put in the site by your users?||Service providers cannot see the information put in by Shortlister's consultant and employer users.||Service providers can see information that was collected from their own clients.|
