Welcome to Great Lakes, an affiliated group of companies that has focused on college access, college completion, and successful student loan repayment for 50 years.
Effective February 7, 2018, our Great Lakes Educational Loan Services, Inc. (GLELSI) affiliate is a part of Nelnet. All other Great Lakes affiliates are excluded from that transaction and continue operations as usual.
Federal Loan Borrowers
Nelnet's acquisition of GLELSI has no impact on borrowers' repayment or support. Great Lakes serviced borrowers will continue to access accounts, manage payments, and contact Great Lakes via mygreatlakes.org.
Schools and Business Partners
Great Lakes' customers can continue to access tools and services via our Financial Aid Professionals and Business Partners portals, as well as rely on their existing representatives and support channels. We look forward to communicating directly with you in the coming months about exciting developments and planned changes related to GLELSI's integration with Nelnet.
Our Work as a Federal Guarantor
Great Lakes continues to hold $80 billion in guaranteed student loans.
Great Lakes' philanthropic projects are not part of the Nelnet transaction. All current philanthropic funding agreements remain in force. Learn more about our philanthropy.
