    Private college loans are credit-based funds that you can use for pay for education expenses when other forms of financial aid fall short.

    working loads of hours on the side. Or having rich parents. Otherwise I would stay away from most credits banks will offer you. Student loans are usually the best deal for, well, students. Or getting a scholarship might work as well. You just have to apply for one, ramit from iteachyoutoberich.com wrote about this in his book.

    Working loads of hours and having RICH parents is not the answer for many. Look for grants and other non-profit funding. I've heard that somewhere between $40 and $50 billion dollar of scholarship money GOES unused each year. Why? Most students don't know how to ask for it.

    Call the admissions office and ask for a list of scholarships in your chosen field. Apply to ALL of them...even if it's just say $500 from an alumni who wants to give back...or the little old lady's Garden Club..etc...

    You can't be picky here...if you don't have ALL the money to go FULL time...do what you can...you'd be surprised how FAST time goes by! It took a good friend of mine 9 years to graduate...he worked...took classes..got a little bit of $$$ here and there...now he's a real-estate millionaire in TN.

    Student loan rates are subject to many changes. It is possible that a loan to hire two different interest rates on the loan, that rate is calculated at the time that students in the school and the other comes into action once the students graduate. Consolidation loans are long term loans than other Student Loan Rates. Students can choose terms of 10-30 years. While the monthly payments are lower, the amount paid for the loan is higher draft distributed to other loans. Fixed rate of interest is calculated as the mean interest loans are consolidated, assigning the same amounts borrowed, and rounded up. Some lending policies of such characteristics as the grace period for paying back are lost and do not reflect the consolidation loan. These are not suitable for all loans with interest rates borrowers. Student consolidation is linked to one or more financial indices.
