Help Pay for College with a Sallie Mae Student Loan
A big part of planning for college is figuring out how to pay for college. Sallie Mae has two student loan products to help meet your family’s needs.
While the loans have different features and available interest rates, both loans offer:
- Choice of repayment options
- Competitive interest rates
- No origination fee, no prepayment penalty
If you want to support your student by sharing the responsibility of paying for their education, you can cosign a Smart Option Student Loan.1
If you want to take responsibility for financing your child’s education, you can take out a parent loan in your name and relieve them of the financial responsibility. Any creditworthy individual can take out a Sallie Mae Parent Loan, including grandparents, aunts, uncles, spouses, and guardians.2
