Info on bank loans anyone?

  1. Hello All,
    I have been accepted to ASU!!! Woohoo!! Anyway, they start every January so I have a little time to really plan my finances. ASU is in my state an a few hours from home. I am married and unable to uproot my family for school so I will have to get an apartment and still keep paying the regular household bills. My question is what avenues are there for loans? Low interest and etc... I believe there are loans that cover some of the tuition (federal I believe) for around 18,500. This will cover tuition and books but will not make a dent in living expenses.

    Any advice is appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Try contacting Wells Fargo. They offer student loans. Just out of curiosity, where do you live? I'm also about two hours from ASU.

    I'm apparently ethnocentric, because whenever I see ASU, I think AZ State. Univ. And I was wondering when they added a CRNA program to their graduate curriculum!

    federal loans are at www.fafsa.gov good for 18,500, the school's finacial aid dept. should have a list of available loans, some loans will cover cost of attendance(how much the school calculated attendance to cost including rent, books, etc.) minus finacial aid from federal. for example my schools cost of attendanc for this year was 32,000, i got 18,500 from gov. and 13,500 from wellfargo, i also got another 20,000 from bankone for other expenses. you'll have to research the interest rates, but you can apply and get approved online and it doesn't take very long to get your money.

    try salliemae.com or bankone.com for extra money on top of your federal. your school will also let you know who they work with most often for supplemental loans. you will get all of this info after you fill out your fafsa and your school gets back to you, best of luck.
