Iowa Student Loan's Partnership and College Family loans are designed to supplement — not replace — other sources to fill funding gaps for students and parents. Students and parents should work with financial aid professionals at their respective colleges and universities to explore and exhaust all sources of student financial aid before seeking a private loan.
Student loans should be used for education costs only. Remember that every dollar you borrow now must be repaid later with interest. Information about the Partnership and College Family loans is provided upfront and in clear terms so students and families have a full picture of the loan before they begin the application process.
