I hope this message reaches you well and you are having a great start to the Spring!
I wanted to take this opportunity to share with our North American candidates the amazing financing agreement IE has with Sallie Mae for American students. This agreement has allowed a countless number of Americans to make their dreams at IE come true, and unlike other funding agreements this one can cover tuition and LIVING expenses! This can make all the difference in your IE experience because one of the most important parts of coming to IE, is coming to Madrid, and you want to make sure you have all the funds to take full advantage of everything the city has to offer.
IE´s agreement with Sallie Mae has extremely favorable conditions for students who are studying outside of the United States. These loans are provided directly by Sallie Mae in US Dollars, and the application process has no cost and takes less than 24 hours to complete online. In addition, IE can assist in transferring any funds for living expenses directly to a Spanish bank account or send a check in US Dollars to the United Sates.
Please discuss this opportunity with your family, and if they have any doubts I would be happy to speak with you in more detail. As an American myself I am familiar with how Sallie Mae works back in the US and I would be pleased to share my personal advice and experience.
In order to apply for financing with Sallie Mae please visit www.SallieMae.com. If you or your family have any questions or require any assistance with this process please feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
