Crafting A Repayment Plan for Your Student Loans

July 21, 2014 | posted by College Money Insider. Leave a comment.

It’s a time of great change for the members of the recently-graduated Class of 2014. Whether a few months into a new job or still looking for the right opportunity, everyone is trying to figure out their new life – and just as importantly, how to pay for it.

The first step towards gaining your footing financially is to take stock of your income and expenses and create a budget. Of course you’ll want to start by making sure you can pay for the necessities – food and shelter – but there are a lot of other expenses for which you’ll need to plan. A professional wardrobe. Your car note. TV and Internet. It all adds up quickly. And then there’s the other big milestone you’ll soon face: starting repayment on your student loans.

I can’t believe that I just graduated! On June 11th, I was no longer a high school student anymore, but I became a college-bound freshman. These last few months have been exciting to say the least. I had my senior banquet and prom, which were both awesome ways to close out the school year. I’m out of school now and enjoying the summer weather. I can’t believe it’s official — I am done with high school. The thought alone scares me half to death but it’s thrilling at the same time.

Right now we are in a lull in the college process.  Not much for us to do right now.  Jessica has registered for orientation at College of Charleston in July – should be nice and hot! Really at the moment we just need Jess to finish out high school…senioritis has definitely set in.  Lots of fun things happening soon – senior banquet, senior picnic, prom.  Hopefully she can focus enough to do well on her AP and senior exams in May.  Final transcripts will have to be sent to Charleston, so she needs to hang on just a little longer.
