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.

School Student Loan Debt Rankings By State

school student loan debt rankings by state

There is no denying that pursuing a college education is an important and life-changing event in a young person’s life. Obtaining a degree leads to countless opportunities that would have previously never existed without one. There is just one problem…

College is expensive. Really expensive.

In fact, for the 2015-2016 school year, the average annual costs of public and private 4-year colleges were around $34,000 and $44,000, respectively. That is no small chunk of change.

While it would be nice for all students to attend college for free, it is simply not a reality in our nation today. When college savings, scholarships, and grants aren’t enough, students and their families often have to turn to student loans to bridge the gap.

Currently, there are over 43 million Americans holding over 1.35 trillion dollars in student loan debt. Student loan debt often holds graduates back from purchasing cars, saving for retirement, and getting married, among other things. 

In our Student Loan Debt by School by State study, we found that the average borrower from the Class of 2015 graduated with around $28,400 in debt. In this study, we analyzed the average student loan debt at over 1,300 colleges throughout the nation, with hopes of helping students and their families make the best financial decisions regarding their choice of college.

Using the same data, we ranked colleges in each state by average debt per borrower below. We hope that this information helps students who are only considering certain states for college make smarter financial decisions on where to attend.
