By: Julia Russell

College studies are costlier and every student can not afford to pay for increased expenses towards the studies as he moves to higher classes in the colleges. However college student loans have made perusing college education possible for each and every students if he is unable to get financial help from own sources.

can best be availed at easier terms from the government itself. The government provides college student loans in the form of Federal Student Loans. This type of college student loan is very attractive as it comes with a fixed lower rate of interest which is 5 percent and the student is not required to repay until 9 months after the graduation. Also there is no extra fee. To qualify for these loans a student has to apply for Federal Student Aid.

Student can also be availed as Stafford student loans. These loans are approved in subsidized or unsubsidized options. Under the subsidized option the interest rate is little higher and grace period for starting the loan repayment is only six months. On the other side the unsubsidized loan option does not give any grace period and starts accumulating interest from the day of disbursing the loan amount to the student. The unsubsidized loan is easier to qualify for and even easier to be approved. Also the parents can borrow as much as they need under the unsubsidized loan. A draw back of the unsubsidized student loan is that it comes at higher interest rate. The parents also should have a good credit score to apply for the loan.

College student loans are also available for specific studies. For stances medical students can get Health Professional Student Loans which are approved at low interest rate with a full year’s grace period. College student loans can also be sourced as private education loans from many banks and credit unions. So there are many options for a student in taking college student loans. Students should explore every source before settling for the suitable one.
