Financial Friday: Student Loan Toolkits
Student loan balances deserve a periodic check. The quickest way to do this is to go to the National Student Load Data System. At this site, you can view your federal loans, grants and aid overpayments and the status of your loans that are subject to subsidized usage limits. This is also where you can change your contact information. The site also provides answers to common questions about student loans and your financial aid. This is a personalized site, so you can view your actual results.
As a student of Stetson University, you also have access to free tools that help you repay student debt and plan school costs. These tools help you set your goals, see what you’ve completed, guide you through what’s next and provide recommendations based on your goals. They will also link you to other financial planning tools, like how to spot a bad scholarship.
Stay (financially) healthy!
