Use your closest resources when it comes time to plan your college financial aid strategy.

MHESAC doesn’t include a private or alternative loan among its arsenal, but that doesn’t mean you might not need one at some time in your education. Don’t forsake the federal loans for a perhaps more "convenient” private loan—in the end most are quite a bit more costly than your federal loans. Shop among reputable lenders and make sure you understand perfectly all terms of the loan. Rule of thumb: borrow only what you need to cover the education expenses.
