"Sallie Mae is one popular student loan company. Also, some schools can recommend a company to students. Filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) could also help find low-interest student loans, as well as scholarships and grants that are not paid back." Edit: While it is popular, I would greatly hesitate in saying it is trustworthy as they along with Nelnet were part of 9.5 scandal. Go with federal loans if possible. Even though companies like Sallie Mae will service them, you still get the rights and reliefs that the federal government offers as opposed to getting a private loan from Sallie Mae.

Consider that a full time student takes a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester, with minimum two semesters per year. That equals 24 credit hours per year, 48 in two years.

Still a part time student.
