Financing College

Students have a number of choices when it comes to financing their college education. The hard part is choosing one. Here is a list that, I hope, will help you discover which option is best for you.Scholarships- I begin with scholarships merely for the reason that they're the #1 way to finance higher education. You never have to pay a scholarship back and you can find them everywhere (and I mean everywhere). Each and every group, club, business, church, and organization in your community is a likely source for scholarships. You can also find countless scholarships on the internet. Simply search for scholarships on any search engine. If you're still in high school talk to your counselor or the financial aid office. Try asking your employer if they have a scholarship fund (or check with your parent's employer). You can also search the local newspaper. Another thing to keep in mind is that nearly all colleges give out scholarships to good students. These scholarships are typically awarded to students with high GPA's and SAT or ACT scores. So check the college you are applying for has scholarships like these.Grants- Grants are perfect because, like scholarships, you don't have to pay them back. Students can receive grants from a variety of sources. Several of these sources include (but are not limited to) private groups, educational institutions, and the federal government. Grants may be awarded depending on a students financial need, ethnicity, association, or special interests. One popular way is through FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).Loans- Two types of loans exist: federal and private. The Federal student loans you can apply for are the Stafford student loan, Parent PLUS, Graduate PLUS, and the Perkins loan. The most popular are Stafford loans.Private Loans(also known as student loan alternatives) have similar advantages to college students as a federal loan, such as deferred payment until graduation, different loan repayment terms, and borrower benefits. The interest rates on private loans vary depending on the company.Whenever you're looking for a loan you should apply for a loan that has a low-interest rate. To be eligible for a low-rate loan, there are a few criteria which you must meet. Here's a list of things that'll allow you to get a low-rate loan:-Offer Collateral-Maintain a high credit score.-Keep your bank statement clean.-Be working.-Have proof of successfully closing any loan previously-Don't have a defaulter record.-Two references.Get a Job- One other way to finance college is to get a job and earn some money. Some students find a way to get by just working in the summer but other people must work throughout the school year as well. Job opportunities are everywhere. Assess the skills you have and look for a job where you would use those skills. Universities sometimes have employment available for students with financial problems.I hope this information helps! Good luck with everything!!
