How To Apply For A Student Loan
There are student loans which are government backed, and student loans which aren't.
In general, there is no payment due on student loans until six months after you graduate.
To pay the least for your education:
Check the various sources of student loans.
Your health condition is not relevant to the process.
For more information: It is generally agreed that the best source of information about student loans is the school aid office. Each office maintains lists of preferred lenders. When you speak with the aid office, ask whether there are any financial arrangements with any of the lenders they recommend, or if the lenders give gifts to the school or to the members of the aid office.
