What should a student consider when taking out student loans?

Website: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/loans#considerations

Before you take out a loan, it’s important to understand that a loan is a legal obligation that you will be responsible for repaying with interest. You may not have to begin repaying your federal student loans right away, but you don’t have to wait to understand your responsibilities as a borrower.

Loan Dispute Intervention

If you have a dispute over a loan in one of the following programs and you cannot resolve it with your school, your lender, or your guarantor, contact the Office of the Ombudsman for Student Financial Assistance at the U.S. Department of Education.

Federal Loans include:

  • Federal Family Education Loan (Stafford Loan, Parent Loan)
  • William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan
  • Federal Perkins Loan

A Self Resolution Checklist  is available for your use to ensure that you have done everything yourself to resolve your problem. If you have done everything and the issue is not resolved, you may fill out the Ombudsman assistance request form and/or contact them directly.

Be ready to:

  • Identify the problem
  • Define your expectations
  • Describe actions already taken to resolve the problem
  • Provide documentation to support your position
