 MeasureOne, the leading consumer permissioned-data platform, today announced a new partnership and integration with Einstein Higher Edu Solutions, the third-party student risk scoring provider for lenders. Utilizing MeasureOne’s academic data capabilities, Einstein is improving the credit decision process by creating a new standard of student risk assessment, the Einstein Risk Score to better assess a student's creditworthiness.

Founded in 2021 by student loan industry veteran Aaron Pisacane in response to the changing higher education landscape, Einstein will expand the credit pool by assigning students a new risk score with alternative data that includes academic performance. As lenders begin looking for alternative data that better predict creditworthiness, Einstein’s assessment will allow lenders to responsibly lend to students without cosigners or students with non-qualifying cosigners.

“We’re proud to be partnering with Einstein as their data partner to help them create a better student loan process that promotes social equity and removes barriers so many students face in the path of college completion,” said Yaron Oren, Chief Revenue Officer of MeasureOne. “Together we are building a fairer system of loan underwriting that gives students control over their own academic data to secure resources they need to succeed.”

Through the alternative data produced with the integration with MeasureOne, students will be able to share their transcript data instantly with Einstein, thereby streamlining access to student loans. In seconds, they will be assigned a risk score based on their academic record, giving groups of students who previously may not have qualified for loans under traditional underwriting standards access to credit.

“Traditional lenders use only a cosigner’s credit history and income to determine if a student qualifies for a private student loan, and because of this limited scope we’re leaving behind thousands of students who didn’t get the funding they needed to complete college,” said Aaron Pisacane, Founder and CEO of Einstein. “These outdated lending practices have the biggest impact on disenfranchised groups of students. Through our partnership with MeasureOne, we can help promote social equity across higher education by giving hardworking students the access to higher education they deserve.

Einstein’s solution will be accessible to students and lenders beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year. Through MeasureOne's unmatched network of data sources and proprietary deterministic document processing, students at 100% of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada will be able to access and share their transcript data with lenders at no cost. The company’s industry-agnostic approach to consumer-permissioned data will enable the expansion of new data sources as Einstein refines the metrics used to determine risk scores in the future.
