Sallie Mae’s 1-2-3 Approach to Paying for College

With Sallie Mae’s 1-2-3 Approach to Paying for College, students and families will tap the most affordable education funds first and minimize education loan debt upon graduation.

Step 1: Use Free Money First. Students should fill out the FAFSA to access need-based grants and research and apply for scholarships. Students should consider supplementing grants and scholarships with current income and college savings.

Step 2: Explore Federal Loans. Available to both students and parents regardless of need, federal loans offer low, fixed interest rates and flexible repayment options.

Step 3: Fill any gap with Private Student Loans. After students have pursued free money and federal loans, private student loans may be available to cover the rest of their education costs.
