With temperatures reaching record highs across the country, we’re hoping to cool your fiscal nerves with the July edition of Financial Aid News.

As August approaches, most students are eager to get their tuition payments finalized. Whether you’ve paid off the semester’s bills, still need help, or are looking ahead to next year, we have the answers you need.

Highlights from this month’s newsletter include:

Little-Known Facts about College and Insurance

When you’re thinking about college and how to pay for it, you’re probably not thinking about insurance. Do you know rates are often based upon the zip code of the university – which might mean higher premiums? Students’ laptops, MP3 players, and other gadgets might not be covered under your homeowners or renters policy. Let us help! Click here or call 1-855-575-2633 for a no-obligation review from our collegiate insurance experts.

Are you Checking the Couch Cushions for Money?

If you need help paying for the upcoming semester, a private loan could be the answer. Not all student loans are the same, but if you know what to look for, there’s no need to fret! When researching your loan options, compare things like APR, repayment plans, incentives, and deferment options. Finding the right loan now will get the semester off to a great start. Compare your loan options.

Keep in mind, the money goes directly to the school’s financial aid office, not the student. Learn more about the disbursement process and when you can expect your funds today!

    I need help in containing my education. My Dad company has closed, I have not been able to find part time work, and my Mom hours have been cut. It is very hard for me to get to school and pay my expences. Any help will be grateful appreciated.
