How to Get Rid of Student Loan DebtIf you are thinking about college or grad school, you might be wondering how to eliminate student loan debt after graduation.  Lucky for us, Patricia Briggs asked if she could write an article to help us eliminate our student loan debt.  Patricia is a guest columnist, blogger, author for various websites and communities.  She loves to write articles during her free time about bankruptcy, investment opportunities and monetary policies.
Millions of students are relying on loans in order to pay for their educational expenses. After graduating, these students find it difficult to eliminate their overwhelming debts as the interest begins accruing on the principal balance. Here are some solutions for fresh graduates to avoid damaging their credit reports and to eradicate their student loan debt: 

  1. Formulate a debt repayment plan so that you can focus on accumulating some extra cash to eliminate your debts. You can prepare a list of the debts in descending order of the interest rate. You can use your extra income to pay off the high interest debts and make minimum payment on your other debts on the list. Once you pay off the highest interest rate debt then focus on paying the second highest on the list. But, you should remember that you will not succeed in paying off the debts unless you follow a budget.
  2. Negotiate with the creditors to lower the principal balance along with the interest rate. Try to convince your lenders to reduce the interest rate or monthly payment until you get a job. Be aware that a creditor might charge interest or a late fee on your owed amount.
  3. Enroll in a debt consolidation program if you need to manage multiple creditors. This will allow you to consolidate your bills in a single convenient monthly payment and it help you get out of debt. But, the success of the consolidation program depends on the type of your student loan, your income flow and your eagerness to maintain a financially disciplined life.

These are three important ways to eliminate your student loan debt effortlessly. If you have an insurmountable amount of debt, employ any of the above mentioned methods to lower your financial woes.
