LEARN MORE ABOUT LOANS
Loans, unlike grants and scholarships, need to be repaid. There are two types: federally/state funded and private. Federally funded loans are best because they provide the most consumer-friendly loan rates, benefits, and repayment options. Private loans are available through banks and other private lenders and come with varying rates, benefits, and repayment options. If you are considering private loans, here are a few important things to consider.

If in doubt, you can contact the company where you received your educational loan directly to see if they offer loan rehabilitation programs.
