For many college graduates, paying off student loans is an experience that often takes longer than the college education itself. In the midst of a pandemic that is threatening human lives, while devouring paychecks, savings, stock portfolios and retirement plans, paying off those loans can be particularly challenging. Denise Dias, a family and consumer sciences agent with K-State Research and Extension's Johnson County office, shares news for college loan borrowers, regarding special arrangements that are being offered during the COVID-19 pandemic. She also has some ideas and strategies for addressing student loan debt, whether you're taking a break between semesters, working on a graduate degree, or have just a few payments left.
