Many students and families borrow from federal and private loan programs to assist in financing a college education. Loans are considered part of the family’s investment in a student’s education and become the student’s and/or family’s responsibility to manage and repay once the student graduates.

Regardless of lender, loans must be repaid with interest and, in many cases, include additional fees to obtain (origination fees).

Compare loan programs, then choose the one that best suits your needs and goals.

Do not take on more debt than you can handle. Borrow only what you need.
