Who can I talk to about student loans?


First, you should talk to your school’s financial aid office – they will have information about your federal student loan options.

To find out more information about private student loan options, you might first consult a local credit union or bank. You should also ask your school’s financial aid office to see if they have any lenders who offer special rates to their students.
