Student Loans

These are great ways to help finance a college education.

The most common loans are Stafford loans and Perkins loans.

The interest rates are very reasonable, and you usually don't have to pay the loans back while you are a full-time college student.

The downside is that these loans can add up to well over $100,000 in the course of four, six or eight years, leaving new graduates with huge debts as they embark on their new careers.
