Review and Ratings for Navient

Is Navient Legitimate?

Having issues with Navient? You may have legal options.

The reality for many people looking to further their education at traditional four-year or technical two-year colleges and universities is that student loans are necessary to make their studies possible. Even individuals looking to better themselves, improve their knowledge to advance within their companies, and those looking to make a career switch later in life are subject to taking out large amounts of money in student loans in order to pay for courses, materials, room and board, lab fees, and other college expenses.

Navient Loans is one of many loan companies people may choose to help fund both their higher education goals and other life goals. However, many people may question just how legitimate Navient is especially because of multiple customer complaints — and recent lawsuits that have been filed against the company.
