Student Loans

Paying for College: Earning a college degree has many benefits: higher earning potential and increased career stability just to name a few. But with the rising cost of college expenses, you may be wondering how to maximize your college experience while minimizing costs. It’s important to understand your options for paying for college and how to navigate the financial aid process. 

Student Loans: A student loan is designed to help students pay for post-secondary education costs such as tuition, books, supplies, and living expenses. If you apply for financial aid, your school will likely include student loans as part of your financial aid package. It is important to understand what types of loans you are offered. Generally, there are two types of student loans: (a) Federal and (b) Private student loans. This module is designed to help you fully understand the ramifications of acquiring debt to finance your education. The Student Loans module is not meant to discourage you from acquiring debt that can help you pursue your dreams. Instead, it will help you gain adequate financial information to make informed financial decisions and manage debt wisely to achieve your dreams.
