Loans

A loan is money you borrow from the federal government or private lenders like banks. You pay it back with interest over time.

Generally, student loans from the federal government are lower interest, have more flexible repayment plans and more benefits than loans from private lenders.

You can use loans to pay for any educational expenses (tuition, on- or off-campus housing, school supplies, etc.).

Loans are probably the most confusing area of financial aid. Always do your homework. Know the terms and conditions, interest rates and who is making the loan.
