    ALL STUDENTS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE TUITION...THE STATE OF TEXAS HAS A NEW LOAN PROGRAM CALLED "BE ON TIME." Essentially the state is looking to have students complete college within 4-years. Many college students find themselves being distracted or change majors and therefore not completing their course work within the allotted 4 years.

     

    The State of Texas is offering to Forgive Student Loans under this "BOT" Program if students can complete their original course work within the 4 years planned. This Loan Forgiveness program is also for students attending 2 year colleges. As long as the student completes their Associates degree within the allotted 2-years their loan will be FORGIVEN! If a student is on the "BOT" Program and does not complete their course work in the 4 or 2 years allotted, their loan will be at 0% interest and they will have up to 15 years to pay off.

    Please go to www.HHloans.com for more information. Good Luck!

     

    Students-I want to post this in a couple places....if you are finding it tiresome to constantly be filling out one college application after another try www.applytexas.org  This is a website that has many good pieces of information for those seeking College admittance. This website is great because you can fill out one application very thoroughly and write your essays only once. Once ou get this application completed you can send it to as many state colleges as you want. You only -have to complete one application instead of one per school. You will still have to pay the application fee for each school you are applying to.
