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

Sallie Mae has developed the simple 1-2-3 Approach to Paying for College to educate students and families about the smart way to minimize the financial impact of education loans by tapping the most affordable education funds first.

1. Use Free Money First

2. Explore Federal Loans

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

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. Many schools also offer the TuitionPaySM Plan which enables students to spread out their tuition payments over time, without incurring interest charges. There is a non-refundable application fee. Other fees, established by the school, may also apply.
