Federal Student Loans: What You Need to Know

Federal Student Loans

Many students cannot afford to go to college without federal student loans. First, potential college students should apply for financial aid at https://fafsa.ed.gov/. Then, students should review their financial aid award letter to see what loans they can get. The federal government provides student loans to help students pay for tuition, textbooks, housing, and school supplies. Student loans consist of borrowed money that must be repaid with interest. So, it is important for students to borrow only the amount they need so that they can repay the loan.
