Know Before You Owe - Student Loan
Are you in the KNOW? Did you know that currently there are:
- 6 Federal student loan programs
- 9 Federal student loan repayments plans
- 8 Federal student loan forgiveness programs
- 32 Federal student loan deferment options
Are you aware that the 1965 Higher Education Act that governs student loans is up for reauthorization this year? In otherwords, congress can end or change everything about student loan!
"There is more federal protection in place when you buy a car than there is when you sign up to take on student debt," said Dr. A. Wayne Johnson, newly appointed chief operating officer of federal student aid at the U.S. Department of Education.*
1 $ Wiser Consumer Education, Inc. has taken on the challenge of teaching consumers how to avoid unwanted student debt that is peddled by both for-profit and not-for-profit schools. Building on our 12 years' experience as a provider of financial literacy education to more than 50,000 people across the country, attendees will leave our events with an understanding of the risks associated with various types of student loans as well as alternative options for financing higher education. This program is a MUST attend for every student who plans to obtain additional education and/or training after high school - and their family.
