If I use loans to pay for my college tuition, how long do I have to pay back the loans?

Thinking about having to pay for college is scary, especially if using loans. I have heard many stories of people using loans to pay for college, but when they graduate, they are still severe college debt. How much time do people have to pay it back?

How much debt will you be in after college?

I want to attend a four-year college, but I'm also worried about debt and student loans. I'd like to take action that would prevent me from having to spend the rest of my life paying off debt ( like the 2 years at York tech free then going to an actual college). But if it will be worth it for the college experience, personal development, and somewhat independent living, I would be willing to do it. Simply tell me if it's worthwhile.

Advice to Avoid too much Debt

Many people have told me that going to medical school will most likely get you into debt after. I wanted to ask: - how do I know what type of loan to get? - will I be able to take more loans after each semester? -if I don’t use all my loans and I return some, will I be able to get a refund for what I didn’t use? -what is the average student loan interest rate? -Which is better, private or student loans? -what are some “unknown” scholarships that I can get? -as an African American, what are some scholarships I can get?

Any good jobs to do while doing a master's in nutrition?

Master's program are more expensive than undergraduate programs. And loan repayment can be annoying. What kind of job or internship would you recommend doing (if possible) while studying nutritional science for a master's degree? Also, how did you stay frugal during those times? #nutrition #student-debt #finance #clinical-nutrition

What are other ways to pay for medical school besides loans and scholarships?

Medical school is expensive, as everyone knows. And paying off loans will increase the amount of stress for a medical student to go through. Are there ways to earn some cash to pay off the debt and to avoid getting loans for medical school? Scholarships can be limited as well. #medicine #money-management #finance #debtfree #student-debt #debt

Is there such a thing as an accredited, online, FREE university?

I am so tired of debt that has accumulated from my studies. I want to learn and grow and have a brighter future, but the more I study, the heavier my debt load becomes. I am applying for scholarships, however, they of course do not guarantee funding. So, is there a university that one does not have to pay for or that offers a chance for complete coverage of the student's financial burden for attending that university? #university #student-debt #online #finance #debt #online-college

Do you have to go to a prestigious university to get into a "good" medical school?

I plan to study to become a #physician after I graduate from high school. I want to attend a "good" #medical-school, but I don't know if I'll be able to get into one if I attend a #public-school. I know that it is mostly up to me on whether I make it or not. But I have to believe that people who are undergraduates at #ivy-league schools are more likely to get into top medical schools. However, I don't want to be piled high with #student-debt before I even get to medical school, which will probably be even more #expensive . #premedical #medicine #premed

I am a mechanical engineering sophomore and I recently learned my parent can only contribute about 5% of my college finances. What is an affordable, realistic amount I can take out in student loans so I don't drown in student debt? For more information, I live in New Jersey and my dream job would be located in the New York City area. Thanks. #debt #student-debt #scared #money #loans #financial-aid #engineer #engineering #mechanical-engineering

Should student debt be a major deterrent in determining which university to attend?

While there are many factors to consider when choosing a college, one of my largest has been the cost to attend. I know there is no clear-cut answer to whether or not a certain university is worth attending over the other, but should student debt be one of the most important (if not the most important) aspects? Is debt really that hard to live with or is it a mostly just an inconvenience? #student-debt #college

How much debt is too much debt when deciding on which college to attend?

Like many seniors in high school, I am trying to decide which college I should attend next year. One of my biggest concerns of course is the massive cost required to attend a university. My question is whether there is a limit on how much I should spend on my education. Is there a generally accepted amount for "how much is too much?" or is it just a question of how long you're willing to pay back? #student-debt #college-advice
