What are some good resources for Student Aid?

Asked by andrew (16346points) December 27th, 2007

My GF is looking into student loans and the comparison page on her institution’s webpage is woefully anemic. Any good, non-biased sites for comparison or personal accounts of good lenders? Any traps to watch out for?

The College Board has a pretty nice guideline as to what to look for when getting college loans here One thing to beware of is to make sure if its a fixed-rate loan or an adjustable loan. Personally i think fixed rate government loans are better.

Bankrate has a decent tool to compare the rates of different student loans in your are
Also see the comparison chart in this Article

I Stumbled across this site about two weeks ago. It’s a blog about student loans, financing, college, etc. She may find her answer here Student Loan Resources. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, just use the search feature. That’s what we did to find some articles for my nephew.
