TradeUp doesn’t rely solely on student credit-checks to underwrite. Instead, we primarily make funding decisions based on what students are studying, and their job prospects. Once your program is approved, this means we can fund a very high percentage of the students who apply to you.

The exact percentage varies from school to school, and TradeUp uses several additional factors like short answers, work history, citizenship status, and future plans to decide which students we back.
