2/17/15 Tweetchat: Student Loans 101

tweetchat

Get ready for some scary statistics.

  • 40 million Americans now have at least one outstanding student loan.
  • The class of 2014 graduated with an average student loan debt of $33,000.
  • Student loan debt has grown by nearly 300% over the past 8 years.

Are you one of the 40 million Americans who have a student loan? Are you swamped by your debt and unsure of what to do? Are you simply considering applying for a loan?

Student loans are a reality of life for many Americans, so for our next tweetchat on Tuesday, 2/17 at 2pm PST, we’re teaming up with SALT, a free educational program that helps students who want a college degree to get it in a financially responsible way. We’ll be discussing many basics, like what students shouldn’t spend their loan money on, what they can do if their payments are too high, and if student loans can be consolidated and/or forgiven.

Don’t forget to follow both Credit Karma and SALT on Twitter and use the hashtag #CKchat in each of your responses. Hope to see you there!
