Borrowing Tips

Responsible borrowing is an essential piece of financial aid when funding education. Experts suggest that the total loans borrowed should not exceed an individual's expected annual income after graduation. Resources such as The Department of Labor, O*NET Online, Payscale, and Indeed can help you identify your potential income.

Scholarships and Grants

Scholarships and grants (gift aid) are valuable resources when it comes to financial aid. This type of aid can minimize and potentially eliminate the need to take out student loan debt. For more information on how to obtain gift aid, please see the Financial Aid Scholarships page and the Hoffman Family Library Find Scholarships page.
