“Well here’s a sentence you don’t see every day: it’s about to get cheaper to pay forcollege … Thanks to the results of Wednesday’s 10-year Treasury note auction, the rates on federal student loans will decrease by 0.37% for new loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2015.

… this 2.24% yield means that the rate on undergraduate federal Stafford loans will decrease to 4.29% (from 4.66%) for loans disbursed between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016.”

Colleges That Change Lives

Senior Scoop

Reinforcing Your College Search with “Colleges That  Change Lives”

Seniors (new and graduating):  June is the month of change.  Juniors rise to their highly anticipated senior level and seniors proudly accept their hard-earned diploma.  For those college-bound students, the process of a college search is over and can now become a memory.  For incoming seniors of ’17, however, it has only begun..
Any student burdening themselves with such thoughts requires the strength of outside support.  For knowledge of the college search process, look no further than CollegesThat Change Lives.  CTCL is on a mission to “dispel publicly held myths aboutcollege choice”.  Their desire is to educate families, helping students hone in on multiplecolleges fitting individual needs and their unique identity.
