Is the ECSI student loan account problem going to be fixed? Is there a workaround? (Can I manually enter the amount?)

My account with ECSI hasn't updated for several months, and looking through the answers here it looks like this problem is not going to be fixed. Is there a workaround for this? I'd like to have all my loans included on my Mint account. Can I manually enter the information for the loan?


I had to do this because of the issues with Suntrust Mortgage. What I did was delete the accounts that werent updating and creating a manual debt as follows:

Click "+ Add Accounts" at the top of the page

Scroll to the bottom and click "Add Property"

Click "Cash or Debt"

Select Debt and hit next

Name the debt, for instance I used Suntrust Mortgage and add the amount of the debt. When you go back to your overview page it will show up as whatever you call it and will have the amount shown as negative indicating it is a debt.

Hope this helps.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
