Money For College 30

Money For College 30



Everything is​ getting more expensive .​
From gas to​ groceries,​ the​ price of​ everyday life is​ going up and there does not seem to​ be much we​ can do about it .​
Our wallets are feeling the​ pinch like never before .​
In a​ time when people are finding it​ difficult just to​ get by,​ how can you expect to​ send your children to​ college? Finding enough money for college is​ practically impossible.
I went in-state for my college education and watched hopelessly as​ the​ cost of​ tuition went up approximately five percent every school year .​
What could the​ students or​ the​ parents of​ students do about it? the​ short answer is​ nothing .​
If you want a​ degree you had better prepare yourself for the​ difficult time you will undoubtedly have getting your hands on​ enough money for college .​
I got good grades in​ high school,​ participated in​ extra-curricular activities and scored pretty highly on​ my college entrance exams .​
It didn’t help much .​
Every last penny it​ cost me to​ finish college came from my own pocket .​
To earn money for college I​ held two part time jobs while taking more than a​ full schedule at​ college .​
I​ would take one and a​ half workloads every semester so that I​ could graduate early and avoid racking up a​ huge debt .​
I​ had to​ eventually take out a​ small loan in​ order to​ have enough money for college .​
It will take me several years to​ pay off that loan,​ and by several I​ mean at​ least ten or​ fifteen.
Having enough money for college may necessitate taking out a​ student loan .​
If you cannot get a​ scholarship or​ grant a​ student loan may be the​ only way to​ get enough money for college tuition and other expenses .​
At the​ in-state level,​ you must plan on​ needing at​ least ten thousand dollars a​ year .​
That is​ the​ absolute minimum .​
Depending on​ your living arrangements and lifestyle,​ twenty thousand dollars may be more accurate .​
College is​ expensive and there is​ no way around it .​
Most students will have to​ work through college in​ order to​ survive .​
If you are one of​ the​ lucky ones whose parents give them money for college you should kiss the​ ground your parents walk on​ .​
Most people who have to​ take out student loans will be paying on​ them for thirty years .​
If you have been blessed and will avoid this situation,​ at​ least be grateful .​
