What are the best kind of student loans to get?
Federal loans are the best kind because the interest may be deferred until you graduate. The government also offered loan forgiveness depending upon your major and career (i.e. some teachers).
Always grants and scholarships are best because they do not have to be repaid. But if you need a loan, fill out the FAFSA (www.fafsa.ed.gov) and apply for federal loans first. There are several reputable alternative lenders (student loans that are not federal loans) out there but make sure you understand *ALL* the interest, fees, penalties, etc. before you sign the promissory note.
Check out the "Student Loan" pages on www.Schoolwork.org – They feature detailed information from several top student loan issuers.
You'd be better off trying to get a scholarship or grant – you don't have to pay them back.
If you know what you want to major in, find companies and schools that offer grants or schoalrships. Many do and very few know of them.
Check with your local library, they will have books that list companies, schools, businesses that help with educational bills.
Good luck with your education…God bless you.
