Most college students receive some kind of financial aid, either in the form of student loans, parent loans, grants, scholarships, or Federal work-study. In order to understand what these options mean to you and your student, be sure to read our Paying for College Guide. Your client educational specialist (CES) has emailed this to you, but if you’d like it resent, request a copy here.
Be sure to prepare a four-to-five year college cash-flow analysis, accounting for the annual increase in tuition, to determine actual yearly costs. Then it’s important to understand which loans are recommended, which are never recommended and such strategies as the proper timing for using a college savings account.
We know everyone would like to pay for college without loans, but it simply isn’t an option for many families. If you find yourself in need of private student loans, below is our suggested lenders. If you need additional suggestions, a four year cash-flow analysis or have a different payment question, please contact our loan department at Loans@CollegeAssistancePlus.com.
