A whopping 86% of students find paying for college stressful, according to a 2020 College Ave survey conducted by Barnes & Noble College Insights.

It doesn’t take a college degree to figure out why. On top of tuition, you have to find cash for room and board, textbooks and supplies, travel and any unexpected costs that might come up.

And while federal student loans are an excellent way to pay for your education, sometimes they fall a little short.

The maximum you’ll be able to borrow using a federal student loan is just $12,500 a year. And for some students, you’ll be maxed out at $5,500 for the year.

That’s where Credible comes in. With a private student loan, you can borrow the extra funds you need to make ends meet stress-free.

Through Credible, you’ll be able to shop around for a great rate by comparing offers from multiple lenders. And with no origination fees, service fees or prepayment penalties, you can be confident in the loan you end up choosing.
