Guide to Paying for College – Financial Aid, Scholarships, Savings, & Student Loans

Guide to Paying for College – Financial Aid, Scholarships, Savings, & Student Loans

Obtaining a college education is one of the biggest goals in many young adults’ lives. Earning a degree opens up tons of job prospects and other opportunities that would never be possible with just a high school diploma.

They also say college can be a pretty good time. From meeting new people to experiencing things for the first (and often only) time – college is a once in a lifetime experience.

Though getting a college degree is one of the best things people can do for themselves, it doesn’t come without a price. In fact, for the 2016-2017 school year, the average student will graduate with $16,929 in student loan debt. Depending on your school and financial situation this number could be a little high or very low.

So how do millions of students pay for their higher education each year?

Well, the answer isn’t so simple.

There are a variety of ways to pay for college and many tactics and strategies to save as much money as possible when doing so.

This guide will go into these different ways to pay for college – including savings accounts, financial aid, scholarships & grants, and student loans. We will also explain, in detail, the best approaches to take when dealing with these different methods of paying for college.

As always, if you are ever confused about a specific section of this guide, or if you have any questions or comments, feel free to reach out to us!

Without further ado, let’s get started.
