College debt is top-of-mind for parents and students nationwide. There are many little-known strategies and programs to help borrowers restructure, reduce, and, in some cases, even eliminate college debt. Director Shelley Honeycutt says, “The media is consistently portraying the average college debt as $23,000 for a four year degree. Insiders know this is not an accurate assessment of the average debt. Colleges do not include any Private loans or Federal Parent PLUS loans in their accounting of average debt figures.” This misinformation leads to even more frustration for families that are led to believe that they borrowed much more than average when this is not the case. In addition to feeling isolated, borrowers face other roadblocks such as tracking multiple loans (often with multiple lenders), and understanding the regulations governing both Federal and private student loans. This commonly results in an “I give up” attitude and leads to poor debt management and, frequently loan default.
COACH2college has a unique service to guide borrowers through post-college debt management of both Federal and private loans. Parents and students alike can streamline debt, lower payments, and, more importantly, find relief from the stress of college debt. Most college planners do not have the experience, know-how, or desire to offer these important services. A good first step to learning more about your college debt options is to attend the free COACH2college seminar on June 26th about college debt. “I was thrilled to have the professional guidance and experience offered by COACH2college”, said Amanda a recent college graduate. “Before, I had multiple payments, a bunch of confusing paperwork, and harassing phone calls. Now, I have one lower payment and I am on track to dissolve a portion of my Federal debt with the new Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program.”
