Once you've graduated and landed your first job, paying back your student loan will have to become one of your top priorities. You'll need to figure out a repayment plan based on your budget and learn how to stick to it.
Luckily, there are many ways to make your repayment plan work for you and your family. Whether it's applying for interest relief or reducing your monthly payment to spread your plan over a longer period of time, no matter your financial situation, you can make sure you keep your obligation to pay back your student aid.
Why It's a Good Idea
By paying back your student aid, you'll avoid additional interest charges, loss of future student aid and grant assistance, collections, a bad credit rating, and loss of future income tax refunds and GST rebates.
