Can I get a Student Loan with Bad Credit?
If you have bad credit, you may be reluctant to start a college education for fear that you won’t qualify for a student loan to pay for school; but fear not! If you have bad credit, you have several options for getting a student loan. Federal loans and private loans (with or without a co-signer) are avenues to pursue to help pay for school.
Federal loans, both Stafford and Perkins loans, are available for students with bad credit. These student loans for bad credit are ideal for nearly all students, including those with bad credit because they are easy to obtain, offer low interest rates, and have flexible repayment terms. Generally, repayment is not required until after graduation so the chance that you will have a better job making enough money to afford the monthly payments of these student loans is pretty good.
What are Direct Student Loans?
Direct Student Loans are funds made available to students and parents to help pay for college. Direct student loans are low-interest loans, and while the lender is the U.S. Department of Education, individuals may work with a private business who releases the funds or directly with the federal government. Direct student loans include subsidized, unsubsidized, and parent-only loans. These loans are simple to apply for, and unlike other forms of financial aid, are not based on financial need. These funds must be paid back after graduation; however, there are payment programs, opportunities to consolidate multiple loans, and loan forgiveness programs for qualifying individuals.
