Sallie Mae's 1-2-3 Approach to Paying for College

With Sallie Mae's 1-2-3 Approach to Paying for College, we encourage students and families to tap the most affordable education funds first and minimize education loan debt upon graduation.

  • Step 1.

    Use Free Money First. Students should fill out the FAFSA to access need-based grants and research and apply for scholarships. Students should consider supplementing grants and scholarships with current income and college savings.

  • Step 2.

    Explore Federal Loans. Available to both students and parents regardless of need, federal loans offer low, fixed interest rates and flexible repayment options.

  • Step 3.

    Fill Any Gap with Private Student Loans. After students have pursued free money and federal loans, private student loans may be available to cover the rest of their education costs.
