  4. 4. How Does Loan Qualification Work? Loan Qualification is based on student financial need- which is determined by an equation Cost of Attendance – (Expected Family Contribution + Grants and Scholarships)= Financial Need
  5. 5. What Do You Qualify For? The types of student loans received by students are often determined by financial need. Students with large financial need receive Subsidized Stafford Loans and Perkins Loans. Students with less financial need will receive Unsubsidized Stafford Loans and Private Loans.

  8. 8. What Types of Student Loans Are There? Direct Stafford Loans Direct Stafford loans- both subsidized (interest is paid on the borrower's behalf by the Federal Government) and unsubsidized (interest is the responsibility of the borrower from the day the funds are issued and will be added to the principal balance once in repayment, capitalized) come from the Federal Department of Education in the students name at fixed interest rates.
  9. 9. What Types of Student Loans Are There? Parent Plus Loan A federal loan offered in the parent’s name on behalf of the student. It is credit based (for adverse credit history) and repayment begins immediately.
  10. 10. What Types of Student Loans Are There? Grad Plus Loan Graduate student loans offered by the Department of Education at fixed interest rates. The interest is the responsibility of the borrower from the day the loan is issued until it is paid in full.
  11. 11. What Types of Student Loans Are There? Private Loans Credit based loans offered by private lenders at both variable and fixed interest rates. The loan is in the student’s name. A cosigner is usually required.
  12. 12. Know What You Owe! Most students take out loans and forget not only how much, but who they owe Students can reduce the cost of borrowing and stay on top of their student loan balance by making minimal monthly payments while in school.
  13. 13. How Much Will You Actually Owe? The $5,000 a student has in loan balance at freshman year will likely increase before graduation due to interest accrual. Student Loan Capitalization, is when unpaid interest is added to the principal balance 6 months after graduation. It leads to a higher outstanding balance. The average borrower graduating today owes close to $30,000 on their student loans.
  14. 14. What Are Your Loan Repayment Options? Deferment The option to delay payments during school and during repayment. The Federal Government will pay interest on Subsidized Loans during deferment. The borrower is responsible for interest on all other loans during deferments.

  22. 22. What If You Don’t Pay Your Loans Back? Failure to repay student loans leads to delinquency, and then default on loan obligations When an account goes unpaid for 30+ days, it is often considered to be in delinquency. 90+ days of delinquency often leads to default. Student loans can not be discharged in bankruptcy, so default can mean garnishment of wages
  23. 23. How Do Student Loan Repayments Impact Credit? Most students do not have credit when they borrow their student loans Student loans often are an early factor into many people’s credit scores, so it’s important to start off well! More info about credit scores
