Student loan application process and timeline
Pay for your higher education with a student loan from Fox Communities Credit Union
Finishing high school and getting ready for college can be a whirlwind. From figuring out where you want to go and what you want to major in to meeting your dormmate and deciding who’s bringing the toaster and who’s bringing the George Foreman grill, there’s a lot to keep track of – and that’s saying nothing about figuring out how you’re going to pay for it. That’s where we come in. Whether you’re taking out a student loan from us or paying for your higher education a different way, we want to make sure you don’t miss any important deadlines.
IMPORTANT STUDENT LOAN DEADLINES TO KEEP IN MIND
With tuition prices the way they are these days, saving for college can be a lifelong pursuit. But no matter how you’ve been saving, your junior year of high school is when you need to buckle down and iron out your plans. That means starting to research financial aid and scholarships at studentaid.ed.gov and nasfaa.org right away in the fall. This will help you figure out how much aid will be available to you as prepare for your next steps.
Then, as you enter your senior year, it will be time to get more concrete continuing education plans in place. Once you know where you’re going, what you’re doing, and how much it’s going to cost, you’ll be able to see how much additional funding, if any, you’ll need. Once you know that, it will be time to investigate student loans. You can use the links we’ve already provided, or you can contact our friendly Fox team at any of our Fox locations, to learn more.
