OUR NAME CHANGE
General FAQs about the Name Change
The landscape of higher education and student lending has changed.

Our goal is to create an environment in which students and institutions can successfully navigate the complexities of today’s higher education market.

No, it does not. If anything, this change will help us to expand our support to the higher education community due to a better ability to work on a more national level and offer more services.
The TG name has been retired. Trellis Company is our new name going forward, inside and outside the company, as of November 1, 2017. That doesn’t mean you won’t see ‘TG’ or ‘TGSLC’ on some systems and documents. This name change and transition will take some time.
