Student loan debt is on the rise nationally as students struggle to find ways to pay for higher education. Many students have difficulty navigating financial aid. For student loan borrowers, many do not fully understand their repayment obligations after graduation. Washington State Community College (WSCC) is partnering with SALT to combat this tough issue by educating students about their options. SALT is an important financial aid resource that offers student loan debt solutions in a convenient web-based program. One of the most daunting challenges for current college students, as well as graduates, is how to manage and repay college loans. While SALT is not technically an acronym, it has been jokingly referred to as Students Against Loan Terrorism. The actual origin of the name SALT comes from the fact that salt was used as one of the first forms of currency in early civilizations. In either case, the aim of the program is the same- to help students set realistic goals for loan repayment as well as educating them about the many options that exist.
