One of the happiest moments in most students’ lives is crossing the stage at commencement and receiving their degree. However, this joy can quickly turn into dread once a steady flow of notices start pouring in, announcing the first student loan payment is due. This can be the ultimate nightmare, especially if you have little knowledge of how to manage student loan debt.

Heather Jarvis, a student loan expert, once owed $125,000 in student loans from Duke University School of Law School and was facing 30 years of $1,200 monthly payments. Fortunately, Jarvis sought help and was able to pay off her debt through the school’s loan-repayment assistance program.
