College Financing and Loan Repayment

Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority (MEFA)
For more than 30 years, MEFA has been helping Massachusetts students and families plan for the future. Here is information on refinancing student loans.

Paying for College
College can be funded in a variety of ways. Scholarships can be a good option to pay for college. Unlike loans, the advantage of scholarships or grants is that they do not have to be repaid. Many workplaces offer tuition reimbursement for college educations.

There are also loan forgiveness programs for occupations in which there is a shortage of qualified workers. Here are some websites with information on repaying student loans or seeking loan forgiveness.
