How to Get Your Student Loan Debt Under Control

photo-1416677357736-79cd2bce22c5You already know how I feel about student loan debt: I don’t like it. Some may be necessary for most kids to pay for college, but it can get out of control in a hurry. The key to managing the debt load is to develop an aggressive plan to pay it off as soon as possible.

In fact, I recently published a blog post listing 5 Steps to Help Your Graduating Senior Manage Debt.

This week, I am out of the office and taking a week off from the blog. In the meantime, I would like to share an article written by Jeannie Burlowski, about 7 things your student needs to do to get their debt under control right now. In this series she goes into detail about specific strategies your grad can use to pay down their student loans.

Jeannie is a full time author, academic consultant, and speaker. She helps parents set their kids up to graduate college debt free and move directly into careers they excel at and love.  You can follow her on Twitter @JBurlowski.

Please consider sharing this information with the students and grads in your life. I will be back with more retirement planning content next week!
