Federal Aid Not Enough? Consider Private Loans

What happens when you’ve tallied your federal loans, grants, and scholarships with your family contribution and you have not reached your total cost of attendance? Don’t panic – there are additional options for you. Alternative, or private financial aid is based on your credit history and income and can be used for any education-related expenses, including laptops! Also, you may apply for a private student loan at any time – extremely useful if you run into any unexpected costs. There are a number of other benefits to having private loans such as a variety of deferment options and repayment benefits.

  6. Anthony Dillon Willis says on June 9, 2011 at 2:30 pm:

    I’ve applied to 50+ scholarships this past year and I’ve never heard a word back from any of them. Now my summer college classes are coming up. What can I do?

    • Financial Aid Guru says on June 10, 2011 at 11:26 am:

      @Anthony- Scholarships are in high demand right now, so unfortunately, they can be hard to come by. If you find yourself in need of funding, private loans are often the way to go, as some schools have recently cut federal funding for summer classes. You should check with your financial aid office to see all options that are available to you.

    newsletter helpful…need scholarships to start college

  43. Chrissy says on June 12, 2011 at 7:09 pm:

    well what can someone do if they don’t have a credit worthy co-signer and no income? I have tried about 3 co-signers that weren’t credit worthy enough and so I don’t have enough to cover the rest of my tuition for my summer classes. I wish for summer private loans weren’t so strict since its only a few classes.

    • Financial Aid Guru says on June 13, 2011 at 9:34 am:

      @Chrissy- Many students with this issue often have to rely on getting scholarships and/or a parttime job. If you are unable to find a private loan, applying to as many scholarships as possible could prove helpful.

      • Chrissy says on June 13, 2011 at 6:36 pm:

        thanks.. yeah been trying but with a kid and classes not so much employers even in retail want to deal with working with what hours I’m available.. but that doesn’t stop me I applied for dozens of jobs so hopefully one will take me. As for the scholarships, been entering for months but never got lucky.. still continue to try though.. but thanks anyways
