    Best answer: Yes, you can do that, either directly to the lender or to a bank account you own.

    It is worth looking at what the bank fees are for international payments, to set up the cheapest way to pay. Probably that means keeping a USA account to make regular automatic payments to the loan (monthly?) and then sending bigger international payments to USA to cover several months, so that the total amount of fees is less [Suppose you pay your loan monthly, and you send international payment monthly, that might be $30 per month, $360 per year. If you send the same total, but in 4 chunks every 3 months, might be $40 per payment, total for the year $160). NOTE: ask your bank for the actual fees. this was just an example to explain what I'm saying].

  • College is for rich people?

    I can't afford college at all. Don't tell me about FASFA, loans, scholarships etc because they won't give me much AT all. I'm already working and saving up every single dollar I have at a part-time job just so I can cover the costs. Do not tell me about the military either, I am not smart enough(iep student), I'm definitely not physically ready and I don't feel comfortable being there. College is definitely not for me. It made me start to think that colleges were made only for rich people on purpose so the lower income folks can struggle their neck out just to get accepted and that's highly ridiculous of society to act that way. I'm not going to college, I can't afford it. Since I'm not going there, what would be my other options in life? I know there aren't going to be much with just a high school diploma.. Please give out serious answers on here.

  • FAFSA question please help?

    Hello, My college just gave me the money left from my Pell Grant. What am I suppose to do with it? I thought the money stays with the college and should be used only for education. Is this free money now? I don't have to pay back for Pell Grants correct?

  • I got in to a school with a full ride that requires I am a dependent. If I m 18 and have my own medicaid, am I still a dependent of my mom?

    Best answer: Your mom only has to cover 51% of your living expenses to call you a dependent on her taxes. Even if you have a job. So if you are in school, and she is providiing food and a room to stay in, she is covering at least 51% of your expenses and you are a dependent. Think about it; just a room alone would be a huge... show more

    I’m 19 and living in the USA, also I want to go to college but it’s extremely expensive! My mother doesn’t earn much and not sure if financial aid would like her income so I’m not having high hopes for that. My gpa was/is 3.5 in high school but don’t know if that enough for scolarships and grants? And it’s not like getting a part-time would help. People requested joining the military or something — but is that the only way for me? Will financial aid still help me with my mom low income or not so how gpa score — I heard your parents need high income and a very high gpa. Thanks.

  • What’s the purpose of taking out a loan to pay off college debt, when you can just pay the school directly?

    Also, can’t you set up a payment plan with the school instead of worrying about loans and high interest rates.

  • Do Pell Grants have to be paid back if I finish up the school year?

    If I complete my first year of community college that was paid with a Pell Grant, and I don't return the 2nd year, do I have to pay the grant back? Technically, I'm not dropping out but rather taking time off.

    ok here goes my parents make a **** ton of money, they both have college degrees, businessowners, etc I have worked so (so) so hard to have grades and scores that will get me accepted into basically any school I want to go to, I've done my part to the best of my ability so the only conflict is money They want me to go to a local school that lets in every student who applies so that I get nearly free tuition thanks to merit aid (we don't get financial aid). They won't say this outright but instead have told me the amount of money they are willing to invest in my education. Having already set my sights on a "dream" school--aka any of the 9 colleges I applied to that aren't this one single safety school-- I found it upsetting to learn that I won't be able to attend them unless I somehow make the money to pay for a college education myself. Am I right to be upset or am I just being ungrateful here?

    Best answer: Because each situation is unique, you should contact the servicer of the loans for an accurate answer in your particular case. If you don't know who that is, you can find out by going to www.nslds.ed.gov. However, in general: To get out of default, you have two possible options: rehabilitation, or consolidation. To rehabilitate your loan, you would need to make 9 on time payments under a payment arrangement you set up with the servicer of the loans. There are a number of options, including some that are based on a percentage of your disposable income. If you have a federal student loan that is not in default, you can also get out of default by consolidating the defaulted loans with the one that is not defaulted. All of the loans will be paid off and replaced with a single new loan that is not in default. Usually, you will be placed in an income based repayment plan. Although there are ways to lower the payments by choosing extended term or income based payment plans, there probably is no immediate way to lower the loan other than paying it. There is a very limited loan discharge program that affects some students who attended Brown Mackie, but it applies only to students who attended certain branches of the school in Indiana, attended for less than 45 days and whose last day was between 2006 and 2014. Since you graduated and were there in 2015, it doesn't seem like that would apply to you. However, the cases against EDMC (the parent company of Brown Mackie), are constantly evolving, so you really should speak with the servicer of the loans for the most current information. Other than that, once your loans are out of default, if you qualify, you can participate in certain loan forgiveness programs, such as the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, or forgiveness for volunteer service with AmeriCorps or Vista. You can find full information about your payment and loan forgiveness options at the official government student loans sites: studentaid.gov and studentloans.gov Concerning your tax refund, the answer is probably not. Although they are entitled to attach any government payment to satisfy your debt, the IRS generally does not do that without prior notice, so if you haven't heard from them yet it probably isn't going to happen this year--but there are no guarantees. If you file jointly, they can take the entire refund, including your husband's share, but he can file an injured spouse allocation form when you file and may be able to protect his share. You should ask your tax preparer to help you decide if it makes more sense for you to file a separate tax return.

    Best answer: No. The FAFSA will ask if you were convicted of a drug crime while receiving federal student aid. In order to receive federal student aid, you have to be in college. So, convictions that occur when you are a high school student do not count.
