  2. Great article, Clint.

    Clint is correct that a student loan borrower should always maximize federal student loans before borrowing private student loans. Why? The federal government offers Stafford student loans, for example, at a fixed rate that will not change regardless of interest rate movements. Also, once applying for federal student loans via FAFSA, a student loan borrower should try to maximize scholarship opportunities (whether academic or need based). Then, a borrower should borrow private student loans.

    The other benefit of federal student loans, as Clint notes, are the federal student loan repayment plans such as IBR, PAYE, ICR and REPAYE, and also benefits for deferral and forbearance.
