Ohio Attorney General Introduces Online Student Loan Resource Center

The office of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine has developed a comprehensive online Student Loan Center to help prospective, current, and former college students understand and manage student loans. The Attorney General’s Student Loan Center, http://www.OhioAttorneyGeneral.gov/StudentLoans, contains information and resources to explore careers, choose a school, apply for student loans, and repay loans.

Library staffs may want to refer customers to the site’s resources and tools to help consumers make smart borrowing decisions. It provides tips on how to reduce the cost of attending college, and offers two calculators to help students budget their expenses and plan their loan repayment.
