Abstract: 2009 m. vykdant mokslo ir studijų reformą Lietuvoje esminių pakeitimų sulaukė ir studentų kreditavimo (paskolų) sistema. Vietoje valstybės paskolų iš kredito įstaigų lėšų pradėtos teikti valstybės remiamos paskolos su valstybės garantija. Suvokiant studentų kreditavimo sistemos svarbą didinat studijų prieinamumą aukštojo mokslo sektoriuje, šiame straipsnyje nagrinėjama šiuo metu Lietuvoje veikianti lengvatinių paskolų studentams sistema, jos kaita ir plėtros galimybės. Remiantis užsienio autorių darbais, analizuojama studentų kreditavimų sistemų problematika. Empirinėje straipsnio dalyje analizuojami Valstybinio studijų fondo skelbiami duomenys apie valstybės remiamų paskolų gavėjus, paskolų rūšys ir paskolų mechanizmui skiriamas lėšas
