 I can't remember how they work to save my soul.

Say someone  is taking pre-pharmacy courses just to get into the pharmacy major, he has no choice; he has to take pre pharm before being considered for the pharmacy major, when they graduate with the degree from the pre pharmacy classes which will give him a associates degree, will he have to start paying those loans 6 months after that graduation or can he lump them all together and just pay them after he graduates from the main program which would be pharmacy.

For some reason my mind is drawing a blank..

Depends on where you get the loan but in most cases you dont pay back any loan until you are COMPLETELY done with school and/or have been out for 6 months

You have to start paying the loan back 6 months after you leave school, if you go back to school the loan goes into deferment until you leave again.

As long as he is enrolled and going to school (regardless of where or what major) within 6 months he does not have to pay them back yet. Also - I think it has to be full time. Lastly, everyone has a loan officer, just call your school and ask who your fafsa student loan person is and set up a meeting they will explain everything to you!

As long as you can still provide proof you're in school, they will not collect from you.

Quoting gypsydancer7:

exactly right, then if they are government funded you need to consolidate them ( i did and they are at a 2.4% interest rate)

Try going to www.clarkhoward.com and do a search for "Student Loans." You might find helpful information there.
