Reducing the Cost of School

There are several ways to reduce the amount that going to a college or career school will cost, so you can try to avoid borrowing too much.

 

Lower-Cost Schools
If you plan on working toward a bachelor’s degree, you might want to consider starting out at a two-year community college and then transferring to a four-year school. Community colleges are partially funded by local and state taxes and are therefore usually less expensive than four-year schools. (Some four-year schools are also partially funded by local and state taxes and can be less expensive.) You’ll want to make sure the courses you take at your community college will transfer to the four-year school you want to attend and that those courses will count toward your bachelor’s degree.

Working Or Volunteering
You can work part time to pay for some of your costs. If you do, make sure you save enough time for studying and be sure your work and school schedules don’t conflict.

AmeriCorps is a program that allows participants to earn education awards in return for national service. For more information, contact the Corporation for National Service:
