Is Financial Aid Free?

Financial Aid is a great way to pay for college, but students need to understand that aid is not free and must be managed responsibly. This video by the University of Montana helps to explain.


Loan Payment Calculator

The loan amount, interest rate, and the term of the loan can have a dramatic effect on the total amount you will eventually pay on a loan. Use the Loan Payment Calculator to determine the payment and see the impact of these variables on a specified loan amount complete with an amortization schedule.
