Student Loans

A student loan is borrowed funds designed to help students pay for tuition, books, and living expenses. Student Loans must be repaid with interest.

Usually, student loans will have a substantially lower interest rate and the repayment schedule may be deferred while the student is in higher education.

Responsible Borrowing

The average Class of 2015 graduates with student-loan debt has to pay back some $35,051, according to an analysis of government data by Mark Kantrowitz, publisher at Edvisors, a group of web sites about planning and paying for college. Students and families are paying for a greater portion of the college expenses through loans than ever before. Therefore, it's important that all loan borrowers be aware of their responsibilities.
