- The class of 2014 graduated with an average student loan debt of $33,000.

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.
