Student Loans At-a-Glance:
Student lending can be broken down into two categories:
- Federal Student Loans: Federal Student Loans are by far the largest source of financial aid available to college students. Offered by the federal government, these low-interest loans are for eligible students to help cover the cost of higher education at a four-year college or university, community college, or trade career or technical schools. If you are interested in obtaining a Federal Student Loan, contact your higher education institution or your school counselor.
- Alternative Student Loans: Private student loans are meant to fill the gap in financial aid that is left between the Cost of Attendance (COA) and the Federal loans/aid you've received. Private loans are not offered through the federal government, so it's important to look for a loan program from an institution you trust, like your Kemba Credit Union's Student Choice solutions. These loans are in the name of the student but often require a co-signer. They are not guaranteed or subsidized by the government. Instead, they are based on the credit score of the student and/or the credit score of any co-signer they have on the loan.
