Nellie Mae

The HTML to link to this page
 

Nellie Mae is a wholly owned subsidiary of SLM corporation, aka Sallie Mae. Prior to 1999, Nellie Mae was an independent entity. Nellie Mae started as a non-profit agency in 1982. Nellie Mae makes education loans to graduate students, undergraduate students, and parents of students. Nellie Mae makes loans under both Federal and private loan programs. Examples of Federal student loans originated by Nellie Mae include Federal PLUS loans, EXCEL loans, and Federal Stafford loans. For the investor, Nellie Mae is perhaps less interesting than its parent company Sallie Mae. Much like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac do in the mortgage business, Sallie Mae securitizes and sells to investors portfolios of student loans originated by Salle Mae and Nellie Mae.
