Other Ways to Pay for College

Student Loans aren't the only way to pay for college

At SunTrust, we think it's important that you consider all options to help finance college.

  1. Find free money - Before thinking about borrowing, search for scholarships and grants. You can also enter every two weeks for a chance to win a $500 scholarship through the SunTrust Off to College Scholarship Sweepstakes. In addition, research school work-study programs and look for other scholarships wherever you can — for example, your church groups, community organizations and workplaces may also offer scholarships.
  2. Federal student loans - available to undergraduate students, graduate students, and parents, federal student loans are offered regardless of income level through the U.S. Department of Education.
  3. Private student loans - If the cost of college can't be covered through grants, scholarships and federal loans (Stafford, PLUS and Grad PLUS), consider a private student loan from SunTrust (Custom Choice Loan® and the SunTrust Graduate Business School Loan). With a private student loan, money can be borrowed for education related expenses such as transportation, housing, a computer to use at school, etc.
  4. SunTrust has other options, too - 529 plans and home equity lines of credit.
