It is difficult to say which type of payment card is best for a college student: prepaid, debit or credit. And yes, credit cards are very much still an option that is available to college students, even as the CARD Act placed some restrictions on the marketing and underwriting of credit cards to people under the age of 21. There are certain rules to consider, but at the end it would be a case-by-case decision. And this is a testament to how much prepaid cards have improved.

A student loan is an debts given to a college pupil for continued knowledge and the borrower is expected to start paying off the loan after you finish schooling. These loans come from the Department of Education and this being a government lender, there is no time limit.

Based on current legislation, you should be cautious about combining federal with private loans because federal loans carry fixed interest rates that generally are lower than on private loans. Plus, federal loans maintain benefits or protections, such as repayment based on your income, that you would lose if you consolidate.

It sure seems like someone is scared that this could be a much more interesting investment vehicle for individuals. It is really sad that securities laws are holding back the smaller investors. I think it goes hand in hand with social media. People are scared of it and don't understand it so they try to avoid it. Since they don't understand it they don't think it should exist. We need to educate people.
