When Federal aid just isn’t enough, ACMG Federal Credit Union can help. The cost of college continues to rise, making it more difficult for students to afford. We’ve partnered with other credit unions to form the Credit Union Student Choice Loan Program that can help you and your family fill in the gaps that federal aid may leave behind. Benefits: Requirements before applying for Credit Union Student Choice loan: Apply for your Personal Identification Number
(PIN), then fill out a FAFSA
(Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Your PIN serves as your electronic signature and provides access to your personal records.
- Apply for scholarships—you may be eligible for many of them (see your high school counselor and college financial aid office for suggestions). Free information on preparing for and funding education beyond high school including a scholarship search wizard can be found at studentaid.ed.gov.
To keep your costs at a minimum, take the maximum amount of Federal Student Loans before applying for Student Choice Loan. Visit our Young Adult page
for steps on how to prepare for financial management success!
