One of the most important investments you will ever make is your education. You are investing in yourself and your future. As such, students (and parents) find that low-interest, educational loans provide a sound strategy toward meeting the costs of attending college.

The Student Financial Aid Office understands that you may borrow to pay for your education. Most students today do. Debt levels for graduates at UC and nationally averages at around the $23,000 mark.

The key to loan borrowing is doing so responsibly using sound judgment with an eye on the future. Resources can help you understand and manage student loans.
