Student Loans

Here’s an obvious statement: school is expensive.

Less obvious: there are ways to make school more affordable.

We can help with financing your education, so all you need to do is attend lectures and complete reading and assignments. You should also do some other work before you look at private student loans:

  • Make use of savings, if you have it. It’s always good to start saving yesterday… or a lot of yesterdays ago. But, we know, that’s not always possible.
  • Look for and work toward scholarships and grants. There are a lot out there. And that’s money you don’t have to pay back.
  • Get your FAFSA in on time and find out if you qualify for federal student loans or work-study.
