Student loans?


Asked by pearl_682
I'm thinking about taking out a student loan but I'm not sure which one to get. There are lots of companies that offer student loans but of course I wanna be sure to get a good one and most importantly I don't wanna end up with a scam or something like that. So if anyone has experiences with a student loan, please help! :o) No I'm not american. I'm german and here as a legal permanent resident

Here are the steps you need to take: 1) Fill out the FAFSA. This will determine if you are eligible for financial aid. Go here: www.fafsa.ed.gov/ 2) Once you are eligible for aid, choose a government-based student loan. The best loan to get is a Federal Perkins Loan. These have low interest rates and the government will help you pay it back as long as you stay enrolled in school. For more info go here: www.studentfinancedomain.com/student_loans/perkins_student_loans.aspx 3) The next best loan to get is a Subsidized Stafford Loan. This has many of the same benefits as a Perkins Loan.
