Federal Student Scholarships and Loans for college or career school are an investment in your future. You must repay your loan, so be sure you understand your options and responsibilities. If you apply for financial aid, you may be offered loans as part of your school’s financial aid offer.
If you decide to take out a loan, make sure you understand who is making the loan and the terms and conditions of the loan. Student loans can come from the federal government, from private sources such as a bank or financial institution, or from other organizations. Loans made by the federal government, called federal student loans, usually have more benefits than loans from banks or other private sources. Learn more
