Case Studies


SCSLC Proactively Reduces Default Rates for 30 Schools

The EdManage Division of South Carolina Student Loan is a state funded program to help eligible schools reduce default rates. To accomplish the task and keep 30 schools informed, Client Relations Manager, Ray Jones needed robust data, campaign and reporting capabilities. Implemented in 2015, OneLook from Loan Science provided Jones with the loan information, reporting and campaign management tools to cut rate spikes by two thirds, reduce overall rates by 20% and eliminate stressful uncertainty.



— The OneLook call center application efficiently deploys and manages all of SCSL’s default prevention activities .

— Data Solutions provides frequent reports to check-in on performance and see the difference they are making in the delinquency numbers per school and agent activity.

— Targeted call center campaigns are created and managed through an administrative console.


After using OneLook for one year, Jones reported that the default rates for 2015 are about 1/3 of what the spikes were at this time last year for 2014.


Jones consistently keeps his clients up to date with rate forecasts and statistics. “OneLook makes my job much, much easier. I like to be able to see what’s going on and have that conversation with the Schools before the shock of them getting information that they didn’t expect,” he observed.

A medium-sized, for-profit college faced a 30% increase in their cohort default rate over the previous year, despite working with a default prevention vendor. The situation was further complicated because the college did not know if they were paying a competitive rate for the vendor’s services.


Run a champion/challenger test with Loan Science competing against another new vendor. Include a risk-based assignment process and a monthly scorecard to track results.


The college’s default management costs decreased by more than 25%. Cohort default rates dropped 38%.
