Paying for College
Getting into college is a lot of work. It’s no wonder that figuring out how to pay for college can take on a lower priority, especially before you actually enroll.
How to pay for college requires research and organization, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. The more you know about the cost to attend (COA), what your degree or certificate earnings potential is, how long it will take to complete your program, and what financial aid is available to you, the more prepared you’ll be if you need to take out a student loan.
If you do need to borrow, it’s important to borrow smart. In other words, borrow only what you need and what you can realistically pay back.
