student loan

Definition

A loan offered to students which is used to pay off education-related expenses, such as college tuition, room and board at the university, or textbooks. Many of these loans are offered to students at a lower interest rate, such as the Perkins loan or Stafford loan. In general, students are not required to pay back these loans until the end of a grace period, which usually begins after they have completed their education.
