With college costs on the rise, it's more important than ever for students and families to plan carefully and fully understand all financial aid options. By maximizing no- and low-cost financial aid, choosing student loans carefully, and developing proper money management skills, it's still possible for students to leave college with a bright financial future . . . and not just a mountain of debt!
When scholarships, grants, and federal aid aren’t enough, private student loans can be a necessary and cost-effective way to fill educational funding gaps. Undergraduate students should consider private student loans only after taking advantage of all lower-cost sources of funding, including Federal Stafford loans.
Unlike for-profit lenders, Arkansas Federal exists only to serve the best interests of its members. This allows us to offer more options and better benefits to our members.
