The Student Loan Guarantee Foundation of Arkansas (SLGFA) was established in 1966 and served as Arkansas’ primary guarantor until 2010 when legislative changes mandated that all student loans were to be made and administered by the U.S. Department of Education.


In January 2015, SLGFA created a new division, GuidEd Solutions. While our name has changed, our commitment to provide higher education institutions with quality products and services remains the same. Our expanded services will assist institutions in managing their cohort default rate, guiding students in developing good student loan repayment habits, improving student engagement and helping students reach their full potential.
