This individual has not yet completed their degree and is still in the process of obtaining it.

      Fee

    Correct Answer
    A. A student loan
    Explanation
    A student loan refers to the money that a student borrows from a bank while they are enrolled in university or college. This loan is specifically designed to help students cover the costs of their education, including tuition fees, books, and living expenses. Unlike a scholarship, which is a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid, a student loan must be paid back with interest after the student completes their studies. Therefore, a student loan is the appropriate term to describe the money borrowed by a student from a bank during their time in higher education.
