The Student Loan Toolkit explains the basics of the student loan system, how to assess your own student loan situation, and your options for managing your student loan debt. It includes fillable pages where you can record your own student loan information to help you work through your situation and track your progress toward becoming debt-free. Finally, the toolkit includes information on how and when to get additional help with your student loans, as well as other useful resources.

This toolkit is also designed to be used by financial counselors and legal aid advocates working with student loan borrowers. The information in this guide is useful as a resource to borrowers, counselors, and attorneys alike, and the fillable pages can be used to guide meetings with borrowers, collect key information, and document information for the borrower to refer back to as needed.
