Stafford student loans are available for both undergraduate and graduate level programs.

Wyoming Home Equity Student Aid

Home owners can use the equity value in their homes to pay for college expenses.

Your best option is the home equity line of credit, where you can withdrawal funds from your equity line when and as you need.

Home equity lines are variable rate credit lines. The interest rate and loan amount is determine by the LTV position of your home and your credit rating.

We recommend using the Banker Line of Credit Account to pay the education expenses at your student's Wyoming college or university. It provides greater flexibility at minimal costs.

Scholarships are awarded by colleges and private institutions.

Scholarships are free money awards that do not need to paid back.

Scholarship awards can vary in award amounts. College scholarships for athletic, academic, artistic and other talent can pay up to the full cost of education.

Private scholarships are usually awarded at lower amounts that can add to your total financial aid package.

 

Full college scholarships are rare.

So many students need to search for other financial aid options to cover the full cost of college.

Students need to search early and thoroughly to find all the scholarship money available to pay expenses at their Wyoming college or university. We offer a complete directory of college search databases.
