Paying for college: maximize the free money.
Ready to pay for college? Start by filing the FAFSA. Then, maximize grant and scholarship aid. If you still need to borrow, be sure to exhaust your federal student loans before looking to borrow other loans. If you need to fill the gap between the cost of attendance and your available savings, free money, and federal student loans, consider borrowing from a nonprofit or state-based organization.
