Guaranteed Student Loan

A student loan on which repayment is guaranteed by a third party, especially the U.S. federal government. A student loan is financing used to pay for one's education, especially at the postsecondary or technical level. Because these loans do not purchase any asset to offer as collateral, they are high risk. However, a guaranteed student loan reduces the risk by promising that the third party will repay if the student defaults. Examples of federally guaranteed student loans in the United States include the Stafford loan and the PLUS loan.
