If You Have Student Loans….Assistance is Here For You
If you just graduated or about to and wondering what help you can get for college loans....well help is here for you.
There is a new program on now that helps Michigan residents dealing with student loan debt. According to Michigan.gov, the state treasury department will be offering free one-on-one counseling to Michigan residents who are delinquent on their federal student loans. With the one year pilot program, the department will be partnering with a division of the National Student Loan Program and participants will work with counselors to develop a repayment plan, learn how to create a household budget and better understand credit scores.
As of 2015, Michigan students leave school with an average of $30,045 of debt versus the national average of $30,100. The pilot program is open to sign ups through January 1st 2018. To sign up and to learn more, click here.
