Free to everyone.

Students and grads have important decisions to make about managing their student debt.  Flexible repayment options and forgiveness provisions are available, but the details matter and it can be confusing to figure it out on your own.

In this webinar Heather Jarvis, Student Loan Expert, breaks down the process step-by-step, helping viewers:

  • to understand what kind of loans they have and why it makes a difference
  • to evaluate income-based repayment and other options
  • to learn simple steps to qualify for public service loan forgiveness

Don’t forget your USB drives!

Due to security concerns, we can no longer check lost USB drives for contact information. At least once a week we’ll be turning these over to campus police, but as you can see, a lot of them look the same. You might consider putting it on a long string tied to your bag, or putting your name and/or email on the outside so we can contact you if we find it left behind.

USB drives

Any of these look familiar?

Whatever method you use, be sure to backup your data frequently, in case you do lose your drive. Does anybody have any tips to remember your USB drive? Share them with us!
