Private Education Loan Information
A list of private educational loans is available at http://www.elmselect.com
 
Private Educational Loans are available based on credit approval.  Private Educational Loans are made in the student's name with a credit-worthy co-signer and can take 1-2 weeks to process.  The maximum amount that may be borrowed is the school's cost of attendance minus any other financial aid.  For some loan programs, principal and interest may be deferred while the student is enrolled in the school at least half-time.  Fees and interest rates for these types of programs vary greatly and depend upon the credit criteria of the borrower (student) and co-signer.

6 FINANCIAL AID MYTHS

MYTH 1: My parents make too much money, so I won't qualify for any aid.

     FACT: The reality is there's no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid.

MYTH 2: I support myself, so I don't have to include my parent's info on the FAFSA form.

     FACT: Even if you support yourself, live on your own, or file your own taxes, you may still be considered a dependent student for FAFSA purposes.

MYTH 3: I should wait until I'm accepted to a college before I fill out the FAFSA form.

     FACT: Don't wait. You can start now! As a matter of fact, you can start as early as your senior year in high school.

MYTH 4: If I didn't receive enough money for school, I'm just out of luck.

     FACT: You still have options, like scholarships! Check out the Outside Scholarship link to the left.

MYTH 5: There's only one FAFSA deadline and that's not til June.

     FACT: Nope! There are least three deadlines you need to check: your state, school, and federal deadlines.

MYTH 6: I only have to fill our the FAFSA once.

     FACT: You have to fill out the FAFSA form every year you are in school in order to stay eligible for federal financial aid.
