Loans are the largest financial resource available to students. Loans allow students to borrow money at low interest rates, with no collateral, and generally no co-signer. Most student loans do not need to be repaid until the student graduates or drops to less than half-time status.
Students are reminded that borrowing money for college is a serious financial obligation. When signing a loan promissory note, you enter into a legal agreement. Consider this commitment carefully when taking out a loan.
Types of Loans
