    • The loans I used were Federal Aid through FAFSA. [Link Removed] Free Application for Student Aid . If you file early in the year, you can get matched to grant money as well as loans.

    • My son got a partial scholarship, and the remaining balance is 4k plus. His FAFSA left us with a balance of 2k+, I guess if we start earlier and participate with other scholarship sites we could possibly be awarded more financial assistance. Applying for a loan no matter how small is not working for me and my credit history at this moment in time.

    • I’m trying not to be frustrated because I started saving for my oldest, and stopped, then the second child and now with the third one there is no money anywhere around the house. I believe God will make a way no matter what my mouth says.

    • My daughter receives the stafford loan each year for college.  It is not the interest free loan - it accumulates interest while in school.  Other than that she works her way through school.  Makes as much as she can in the summer - takes only 12 credits per semester and a summer class to lighten her load.  She goes to a State University which is still too expensive for us. The experts say let your student take out their own loans because they will have much longer to pay them back than we will. We need to focus on retirement savings.  I help her with a few groceries and books, an occassional rent payment but that is pretty much all I can do.  I also have 2 more to go to college.  Should have saved years ago but who knew it would come so fast and who had the money to save.

    • Dear Katee,

      I feel you. Since I put this question to the ladies, my son has been expelled from college. No elaboration.
