Many college bound high school graduates and their families are faced with the sometimes daunting task of securing financial aid in order to pay for their college educations. For those families who were unable to save enough money to pay for a student’s college tuition, loans (like ACS loans), are generally one of the only ways that they can afford to finance the education; unless they or the student qualifies for a grant or scholarship program, that is. The number of grants and scholarships available is far outnumbered by the amount of students who need them so loans are how the majority of students will finance their education.
One of the most popular loan facilitation services is ACS loans. ACS, or Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. is one of the nation’s leading service providers when it comes to processing student loan applications and assisting students in getting the money that they need to pay for their college tuition and even for living expenses they encounter while in college. Students will have access to a lot of useful tools and information when they use the services provided by ACS. The dedicated staff will assist students every step of the way in securing the financial aid that they need.
It should be understood that ACS loans does not actually award student loans, rather they facilitate the loans with qualified loan providers such as banks and the schools themselves so that students are able to secure the funding that they need to continue their education with the minimum amount of hassle and fuss. The process is really very simple. Students must first complete a FAFSA application. A free application for Federal student aid (FAFSA) is required by nearly all lending institutions as it helps to determine a student’s financial capabilities as well as their family’s financial status; both of which are needed to determine loan eligibility.
In order to qualify for ACS loans, students must meet certain criteria as set forth by the government, the lending institutions themselves, or the school which the student will be attending. ACS can and will help students and or their parents to determine if they meet all of the required qualifications during the initial phase of the student loan application process. For the most part, after the FAFSA has been filled out and submitted, the resulting information received in the SAR (student aid report) will let the student and their family know if they are qualified for federal aid or not.
For most student loan seekers, the best part about ACS loans is that they are with you every step of the way. They are there to answer any questions you might have and to offer additional assistance in the loan application process. Another great thing about them is that they provide all of the tools necessary through their website for students or their parents to maintain their loans once they get them. This means it is super easy to log on to their website to make a loan payment, see your payment history, or see the remaining balance on an existing loan.
