Abstract

Private education loans are available to students and families who need additional funding to fill the gap between the cost of an education and other sources of financial aid. As a general rule, you should only use private loans after exhausting the full range of federal and state aid available, as determined by your college or university financial aid office. To apply for federal and Iowa-funded programs, make sure to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the Iowa Financial Aid Application every year as soon as possible after January 1. If you need to borrow a private education loan, do your research to find the right loan for you. Below are a few tips to keep in mind when researching and comparing lenders and loan programs.
