Student Loan Counseling: Rewarding Your Hard Work

Getting a good education is a crucial investment.  However, many of us find ourselves still struggling with paying off our student loans years after we graduate.

Come to CCCS of Northern Illinois to talk with one of our counselors. They will work with you to explore all the options available. Then we’ll provide you with a practical plan for conquering your student loans.

What Does Student Loan Counseling Include?

Every student’s situation is different. We get that! And that’s why we are all about getting to know you before helping you solve your problems. We accomplish this through our student loan counseling sessions.

A two-hour session includes one-on-one attention from one of our licensed counselors. The counselor will start by learning about you and your entire financial situation. After that, they will explore your potential student debt relief options. These include:
