Student Loans

Student loans are borrowed funds that must be repaid with interest so you should be sure that you are getting all the “free” money that you are eligible for before you consider taking out a loan. Loans for financing education are available from a variety of programs, including:

Subsidized Stafford Loans: Available to students who meet financial requirements and are attending school at least part time. The government pays the interest from the time students get the loan money until up to six months after they leave school.

Un-subsidized Stafford Loans: Available to any student regardless of financial need, but the student pays the interest while in school, and after leaving college

Perkins Loans: Administered by colleges for students with exceptional financial need
