How to Pay Off Student Loans Quickly

Here are a few tips to help you get the snowball rolling on your student loan payments.


  • Lisa

    I agree with the debt snowball entirely. However, my student loans are all on one statement and though one is subsidized, the other isn’t. Alas, I have vastly different interest rates. By July of this year, I will be able to throw all of my snowball toward that. How can I communicate to the company managing my student loans that I would like for them to be separated so that I can knock the lower one out first? All payments thus far have been equally distributed.
