So, now what? Student loans, whether they are federal loans or not, are options to considered, but to understand first.

Many students that enter college need financial aid. College financial aid provides for instruction as well as the costs of books. But, usually, it does not provide for living arrangements or meals. These are added expenses most of the time.

Federal financial aid or Federal student loans are very common choices for college. Federal financial aid are usually grants which do not have to be paid back. Federal loans are loans backed by the government and do have to be paid back but with a low interest rate. These loans usually have ten years to be paid back. These loans are usually referred to as direct student loans as they are paid directly to the higher learning establishment.
