There are a lot of different ways of funding your way through
college. You might be one of those students lucky enough to have
a full scholarship. You may also have rich or generous parents
who are willing or able to pay the bills.
However, many students are not so lucky. Most of the above
funding sources will only pay part of the bill, not the total.
And even if you can get all your tuition paid, you still have to
come up with the money for rent, books, entertainment and other
You may be able to get a job. This is a good idea for all
students, but it is not always easy to do so. Some colleges are
located far from towns with employment opportunities. Sometimes
employers are reluctant to hire students as they usually cannot
commit to full time work and will likely not be around during
holidays. If you do manage to get a job, it will probably not be
the highest paying job in the world, and you shouldn't work more
than part time. Remember that your main aim during your college
years is to get the best grades you can, and working 40 hours a
week just to pay your tuition would be self-defeating.
So that means that for many students, the only method of paying
for college that will be available to them is to take out
student loans. Going into debt is always a commitment, and it
can be especially stressful before you have even started working
and aren't certain how you will pay back the loans. Student
loans however, have a number of advantages over regular loans.
First of all the rates and terms are more lenient. Student loans
are likely to be at a much lower interest rate than most loans
that will be available on the market for other purposes. They
will also give you plenty of time to get on your feet and find a
job after you finish your studies. This means they are not going
to be due immediately after graduating.
Repayment periods on student loans are probably the fairest and
most patient you'll ever get in your life. These rates and terms
reflect the faith that lenders put in today's students. They
know that ultimately, college is a good investment and most
graduates will be able to pay back their debts if they are just
given the time.
