COVID-19 updates & ways VSAC can help
Choosing a student loan?
You're in the right place.
At VSAC, we understand that loans can be complicated. That’s why we’re here.
You may be eligible for more financial aid. Find out how.
As Vermont’s nonprofit state agency, we can help you learn about and apply for grants and scholarships (“gift aid”) so that you borrow only what you need. We’ll help you understand the difference between federal loans and “private loans” (they're not created equal) and what your choice of interest rate and repayment plan can actually mean in dollars and cents so that you can make the best decisions for you, with the goal of minimizing the amount you’ll pay now and in the long term. And we provide tips along the way.
Know more. Borrow less. Wherever you’re at in the process, there’s something here for you; and we're here to help.
At VSAC, we've been helping students of all ages save, plan, and pay for college and training since 1965. We're local, we're nonprofit, and we're here for you.
