FAQ

When should I consider a private student loan?

If the financial aid and federal student loans you’re offered don’t cover the cost of your education and you can’t make the difference up with earnings or savings, you might think about a private student loan. Before you take out a private loan, however, carefully weigh your anticipated debt for your entire college career, including federal student loans and all interest, against your anticipated earnings. Try to keep your overall student loan debt to less than 15% of your starting salary before taxes.
