Having bad credit will make lenders think twice before approving a student loan. Not only that, but interest rates increase when you have to repay a loan and have bad credit. Private student loans, state student loans, and even PLUS loans can become and stay a dream if you do not have a clean credit history.
So if you're still willingly looking for student loans, consider getting non credit based student loans. Many people say it's a risky business opting for a student loan of this type, but then again … as Frederick B. Wilcox once said: "Progress always involves risks. " The world's richest men take unimaginable risks everyday and look at them. Come to think of it … how do you think they got rich in the first place? By taking risks.
Be Wise, Not Stupid
What I mean with what I said above does not mean that you must take on any student loan someone offers you. That could only make things even worse. You must be sure of the next step you're going to take. And for that to happen you must study every choice you have. If you wish to finish your higher education and have no other choice, then by all means get the student loan because nothing secures a good job than a degree.
Always remember that once you finish your studies you have a grace period in which you do not have to pay off any student loan you took. Get the most out of it and find a job to be able to start paying those loans as soon as possible. Bare in mind also that you can consolidate student loans and extend you repayment period as well as much more.
