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, we encourage you to come in for one of our financial aid workshops.
Complete the Degree will help you fill out your loan applications and file all the necessary paperwork. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.
