How to Manage Your Student Loan Debt

As a graduate student, you may be facing different or more complex educational financing issues than you did as an undergraduate. This may raise questions such as:

  • How will I pay for graduate school now that I’m on my own?
  • If I do decide to take loans, how much should I borrow, and how will I make those funds last to cover all of my program costs?
  • Can I really successfully complete a graduate degree?

If you have any of these or similar questions, Life Skills may provide the answers you need. This free, online, self-directed financial literacy program will answer most of the questions you have about paying for and successfully completing a graduate program.
