You're probably not alone. The good news is that repayment can be manageable (and affordable) if you have a strategy for success.
Federal student loans are different from all other types of debt and represent your investment in your education, so learn how to develop a repayment strategy for your loan portfolio. Coverage of loan forgiveness provisions will be included.
The Office of University Financial Aid invited Dr. Jeffrey E. Hanson to Tulane's campus to speak about this important issue. He is a nationally recognized expert on student loan repayment and the options that are available to you in managing this important financial responsibility. Take Charge of Loan Repayment! Please note that the presenter, Dr. Jeff Hanson, is an nationally-recognized economist who specializes in working with student loan borrowers to explore all options available for repayment, including the possibility of having federal student loan debt forgiven via your employment in a qualifying public service profession and/or income-driven repayment. He is NOT a financial advisor disbursing information on investments and/or other financial matters.
