COVID-19 updates & ways VSAC can help
Choosing a student loan?
You're in the right place.
Chances are you’re both excited and a little overwhelmed. Especially if you’re like most students (and parents) who will need to borrow to fund college or training.
At VSAC, we understand that loans can be complicated. That’s why we’re here.
Are you a Vermont student experiencing financial hardship since COVID-19?
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.
