Types of student loans

The federal government, state agencies, and private lenders offer student loans. These loans can be made for specific borrowers (undergraduates vs. graduates) or for particular uses (attending school vs. refinancing). With so many options available, it’s essential to focus your comparison on lenders that offer the loan you’re looking for.
