Student loans have become an unconstitutional, predatory, and hyper-inflationary national threat, due to the removal of consumer protections that exist for all other loans.   By every rational metric, it is now a catastrophically failed lending system.

We are the oldest and largest citizen’s group in the nation fighting for student loan justice.  We’ve been featured on 60 Minutes (top story), in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR, PBS, and many other places.  We fight only and absolutely for the people.  If you have student loans, please join us in this fight.


Sign our petition calling on the President to cancel student loans by executive order, and also to fight for the return of bankruptcy protections to the loans that cannot be cancelled administratively. Help us get to a million signatures and  beyond!

StudentLoanJustice.Org Founder Alan Collinge

SLJ Founder Alan Collinge is a student loan borrower. His experiences with his own student loans, combined with knowledge of good faith lending learned over years while he managed a small lending program on behalf of the federal government, made him realize that this is a problem the United State has never seen. He took his research to the media and to Washington and was profiled as top story on 60 Minutes.

Since then, he has authored The Student Loan Scam (Beacon Press), has written hundreds of articles in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, etc., does frequent television and radio interviews. In 2008, he was chosen as one of 8 “financial heroes” by CNN/Money Magazine. Prior to founding SLJ, Collinge was associate scientist (aeronautics) at Caltech and he earned three degrees in aerospace engineering from the University of Southern California. Now he devotes himself full time to SLJ.
