Your Life After High School - Getting Ready for College

Student Loans


Written by, Jessica Harris


Student Loans: an Introduction

In order to achieve career goals and a standard of living we desire, most of us need student loans to help pay our way through college. In an ideal world, the loans would get you through college, and college neatly guide you that career which would easily pay them back. Unfortunately, with the economic recession, more and more graduates are finding it difficult to acquire jobs with high paying wages. Graduates are searching for entry-level jobs that would have been possible to attain without the four year bachelor degree and $120,000 tuition, particularly those who's major did not train them for a specified trade (such as English, History, the visual and performance Arts, and Philosophy). This is a personal issue for me, as I am caught in this catch 22, having a BA in English Literature, a minor in Dance, and virtually no specific field for which I am trained. Editors are being laid off and a freelance writer does not accrue enough pay to make a living (or provide insurance). What with the Avenue Q song, I should have known.

If you are indebted by student loans, there is hope. I'm going to share my experience so that you can avoid mistakes I've made and learn the best way to take a loan out and eventually, pay it off, even if that involves student loan consolidation. But to start with, here are facts about your loans and tips about the best way to pay them off:

Types of Loans

There are two different types of student loans, public and private. Public loans are given by the US government. There are Federal public loans and State public loans. Public student loans tend to have a lower interest rate than private student loans are given based on financial eligibility as determined by a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). In the most basic words possible: the less money your family makes during your college career, the higher the loans you are likely to be granted.
