Smart Borrowing Tip

“While a student may be able to borrow to help pay for the cost of textbooks and other miscellaneous expenses, we encourage students to keep the amount of loans they borrow to a minimum by paying for books and other expenses with savings. If they do need to borrow, we recommend they don’t borrow any more than absolutely necessary to pay the direct costs at the school they plan to attend. We also encourage students to apply for as many outside scholarships as possible to help defer costs.”
