With continuous advancements in technology and recent shifts in the job market, the demand for continuing education and career training for adults has perhaps never been stronger. The U.S. Department of Education estimates that nearly 90 million Americans engage in some form of formal adult education each year, and it also notes that four college students in ten are currently 25 years of age or older.
If you're one of those nontraditional-aged students trying to figure out how to finance your next degree—the good news is that loans to go back to school are available.
While many continuing education students are aware of the Federal Direct PLUS Loan, it's helpful to get familiar with private loan options as well. For students attending at least half time in a degree-granting program, our Citizens Bank Student Loan™ offers a choice of repayment options, as well as an interest rate reduction for automatic payment deduction from any eligible Citizens Bank account.
