Besides scholarships, what is the best way to pay for college without getting into serious debt?
I'm asking because I want to have an alternative option in case I am unfortunate in earning a scholarship. #scholarships
Of the several options available for paying for college, scholarships may be the best option for getting a college degree without getting into debt. Another option is to get a job and pay as you go. That's what I did. I had a full-time job from 1:30pm to 10:00pm and attended college classes during the day from 8:00am to 12:00pm. I scheduled my classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, so I would have plenty of time to do homework or complete projects. The way I did it, was to pay for each semester with my credit card, then pay off the balance by the time the semester ended. I did not use my credit card for any other purchases and made sure that I paid it off by then end of each semester. Now, two Master's degrees later, I am totally debt free of any college tuition...!!
