Loans are funds that must be repaid by you or, in the case of the Parent PLUS Loan, by your parent. The interest accrued and the repayment schedule depends upon the type of loan as well as the lending institution. There are various types of education loans that can assist you and your parents in paying for a college education.

We encourage you to apply only for the amount you need. Loans must be repaid with interest. Delinquencies and defaults have dire circumstances and can ruin your credit for years.
