For my pre reqs I have been attending a community college and either used government loans and/or paid out of pocket, and my husbands work reimbursed us a total of $3000 for tuition. Now I am getting ready to transfer to a different school that costs $18000/year but since I have taken quite a few of classes I will probably pay about $13000. I am eligible for about $9000 in government loans so where else should I get school loans? I'm nervous because I've only ever used the loans that don't accrue interest and then are very low interest until paid off.
I'v been paying with scholarships mainly...and federal student loans for the remainder. I have not taken any private loans, only federal. I recommend applying for some scholarships, if possible. Research the scholarships though (a lot of scams out there). My university's financial aid office was a huge help in suggesting both reputable nursing and general scholarships to apply for. Best of luck!
