There are two main sources of student loans: private and federal. As a college student, you should exhaust all other choices before taking out a private loan, as they are more difficult to get and don’t come with flexible repayment options.
The most common type of federal loan is the Stafford Loan, which comes directly from the federal government. To apply for federal student loans, you will need to complete the FAFSA.
