financial plan using the College
Planning Calculator

It provides clear and concise information on what to consider when
borrowing and how to do so responsibly. Through clearly spelled-out
benefits and considerations, the site talks to families about the

the student loan that best meets their needs. The site also provides
information and strategies on how to control and manage total student
debt
