Hoboken, NJ. (PRWEB) March 19, 2007
Paying for college is often the most intimidating and confusing part of returning to school. Approximately half of all adult learners surveyed are using or expect to use either cash savings or employer tuition assistance/reimbursement to finance their educational costs, according to Eduventures, the leading research and consulting firm for the education industry. But there are several other options available which are highlighted in eLearners.com's newly launched loan center.
eLearners.com, the leading resource for connecting prospective students with online education, announced today the launch of its "Student Loans and Financial Aid Center" to help prospective and current students figure out the finances of going to school. The database provides a wealth of information about financial aid, loans, loan consolidation and employer tuition assistance programs. The site also offers a loan buying guide, in collaboration with The Greentree Gazette, where visitors can compare more than 300 student loans by loan vendor, type, up-front fees and interest rates. The Loan Center is a complement to eLearners.com's database of 2,000+ degrees, online colleges & universities, and other resources including the "Online Guide to Education", and the "Distance Learning Discussion Forums & Online Education Blogs."
"Most adult students have a family to support, work full time and go to school part time," said Terrence Thomas with eLearners.com. "As a result they feel they have less financial aid options available than traditional college-age students, but this isn't always the case. The new 'Student Loans and Financial Aid Center' on eLearners.com showcases the college financing options available to students at any age."
In addition to financial aid information, visitors to the "Student Loans and Financial Aid Center" will find discussion forums to talk with other students about grants, scholarships and financing options. The site also has a glossary, which explains the different student loan choices. Another valuable resource visitors will find is information on how employees can talk to their boss about tuition assistance programs.
"Many people shy away from going back to school because of the cost, but most people don't realize how many choices exist," continued Thomas. "This database shows everyone how they can finance their dream degree."
