  • I think all of them don't have to be paid until then. I know mine was.

  • That's how a student loan works. You don't pay until you graduate, and you usually have a grace period after graduation before payments start (about 6 months I think).

  • Make an appointment with a financial aid counselor at the school you are/will be attending.

    You can search for scholarships here:

  • well federal loans are a good option if you can get them (no drug convictions) you can defer them long long after you graduate. if you dont pay on time they never report you to credit adjency or raise your rate (at least the first time... that i all i know about thank god) i think you should start there. good luck!
