How to pay for College Without Breaking the Bank

Everyone tells you that college is worth it. Not everyone tells you the real secret: College doesn’t have to cost you so much — but you have to make smart decisions about how to get financial aid and what kinds of aid will be best for you.

Don’t download this guide if you’re not ready for a good dose of reality. Because here’s the real truth: college is expensive and funding isn’t easy, but that shouldn’t stop you. If you want money, you’ll earn it through research. It pays to do all the reading and paperwork, though. If you do it, you’ll have funding opportunities other people don’t.
