CorePlus to Offer Free College Planning Nights

CorePlus Federal Credit Union is hosting three free upcoming workshops to educate the community entitled “How to Prepare, Pay & Stay in College” with information about Student Choice, our Educational Loan program.  The information is appropriate for any high school student, particularly Juniors and Seniors.
CorePlus Credit Union offers private student lending solutions to help fill the funding gaps that scholarships, grants and federal aid can leave behind. In partnership with Student Choice we are able to offer lower cost financing options that will help you or a family member achieve your goal of higher education.  The Student Choice lending program features an easy, on-line application, lower loan rates, zero origination fees, flexible deferment and repayment options, along with a convenient line of credit that can be used year after year. 
With college costs on the rise, it's more important than ever for students and families to plan carefully and fully understand all financial aid options. By maximizing no- and low-cost financial aid, choosing student loans carefully, and developing proper money management skills, it's still possible for students to leave college with a bright financial future . . . and not just a mountain of debt.
