I’m going to have to take out a student loan with my parents co signing i would take out a loan for two years 49,000 total but 24,000 per year. My parents credit score isn’t bad it’s pretty decent but my parents do have two car loans and a boat loan. I’m unsure of how much they still owe. I’m just wondering if They would be denied to co-sign me I would try to take a loan from a bank. Do you think I’d be denied how does this really work?

    I am a recent graduate from Stanford and have racked up the said amount. I am very stressed out about this because I know I'm probably never going to pay this back.

Yes I know it's a ridiculous amount of student debt, but I can't give you a good reason why it's so high other than I was stupid with my financial aid. If I make monthly payments for a while which I intend on doing can I get the rest forgiven?

  • Will having a ged affect applying for financial aid?

    Best answer: No. Federal regulations require that the student have a high school diploma or the equivalent in order to be eligible for aid, but whether you have a diploma or some other type of credential (such as a GED) does not affect the amount of aid you receive in any way.

    So I graduated from high school and got a full ride scholarship to a community college based on my high school gpa. The scholarship is a last dollar scholarship meaning whatever financial aid doesn’t cover the scholarship would pay for the remainder of tuition and books. I’m at the Fafsa verification process which means I have to verify things in order to process my financial aid and use the scholarship this upcoming fall semester. I got everything for the verification process but one thing. One of my parents are on social security income so I have to bring the financial aid office the social security letter but that parent has gotten social security for over 10 years so we can’t find the letter and we don’t remember there being a letter. Would social security have this letter or documentation some where. Worse case scenario if I have to end up paying out of pocket, then I just won’t go to college, I have other responsibilities that require my money and I’m not even sure of college. I’m only going cuz I was offered the scholarship.

However, I cannot apply for Financial aid to cover it, or FAFSA because I have to be enrolled. Is there a way to overcome this so I can attend in the following spring or fall semester? AKA take out a personal loan, pay off student debt, apply for financial aid/FAFSA to cover the personal loan? Or any other options? I m just trying to be efficient so I can attend as soon as possible.

    I’m trying to get a degree in a science related field that is very tough and usually takes someone with no responsibilities 4-5 yrs to graduate. For me, it will take about 6 because I have children and I have no help whatsoever with them. I will be working part time at their daycare so that they can stay at the one on base while I go to school because it gets my foot in the door for a federal job and also pays more than minimum wage, but I don’t see a career in this field bc it’s hourly and maxes out at like 16/hr. I also work one weekend out of the month in the reserves. I want to be a full-time student so I can finish, but I know I will have to take out loans. I hear people from both sides of the fence some saying that it’s worth it to get the loans because in the long run I will have a job that pays me well I will have benefits insurance retirement and I will have enough money to pay off those loans . On the other hand I have people telling me not to get into student loan debt because it takes forever to pay them off and I will be a slave to student loan debt. My children are very young and I can’t go to school full-time and work full-time bc I’m in classes that are sophomore/jr level. I really want the best for myself and for my children so please any advice would be appreciated.

    Long story short, I completed my first year and a half of college nine years ago. After that I decided to take some time off, which ended up being almost nine years. I had taken out two loans for the first go (I believe one was the Stafford). After being out of school, my student loan provider started collecting payments on those loans. Unfortunately, the loans went into default. I started making some payments just a year or two ago in an attempt to get those loans back into good standing because I expressed interest in returning to college. A year ago, I made up my mind to go back and start back up at a community college for the fall of 2017. My loans were in good standing as of August of 2017 and I was able to qualify for financial aid and received an award from TAP for both semesters last year. My last payment on the loans was in August of 2017. Anyway, I'm now questioning if I should have been paying on these loans while I was in school this second time around to prevent them from defaulting again. I have another semester coming up and I'm hoping to get financial aid again but I know you can't if you have a defaulted loan. Does anyone know how it works if you go back to school years later and you still owe on a previous loan? Since returning to school all these years later full-time, would i not be responsible for making payments on that old loan until I graduate since I'm back in college?

  • Hi, I am an athlete that got a college scholarship for basketball. My question is if I can still work and earn if I am on a scholarship?

    Best answer: NCAA rules state that scholarship athletes can't work while their sport is in season. You can work in the summer, but you need to get permission from both the NCAA and from your school before you do so.
