Does the thought of your student debt keep you up at night? Are you paralyzed by the idea of owing thousands of dollars? Or do you do your best to not think about it—putting it off until “tomorrow”?

Whether student debt has you breaking out in a sweat, or you’re avoiding the reality for as long as you can, it’s time to face the music. But here’s the good news: You don’t have to fear it. Just face it.

Now tallying over a trillion dollars, student debt affects 37 million Americans. Few students and recent graduates even know what they owe—and they aren’t actively seeking advice on what to do about it.
Enter SALT, a free educational resource created by the nonprofit American Student Assistance® (ASA) that will show you how to take control of your student loan debt on a practical, day-to-day level.

Peninsula College has joined SALT to give you access to a comprehensive support network that can help you make better decisions about spending, saving, and borrowing. SALT can help you “Face the Red” by teaching you how to borrow less, borrow the best type of loan for your situation, repay your loans stress-free, and build money skills for life.
