Start Consolidating graduate loans

Consolidating graduate loans

Enrolling in a public college can save you several thousand dollars in debt by the time you graduate. Federal student loans are cheaper, more available and have better repayment terms than private student loans.

Graduating on time can save you an extra year or two of college costs.

Take a full course load or even an extra class if you can handle it. Students who change course mid-stream take much longer to graduate and graduate with more debt.

Suppose you take out a student loan of $28,000 with a 20 year repayment term.
