Make college affordable

Posted: Updated:

I told you how high schoolers can prepare for college scholarships. These are other options that make the cost of tuition more affordable:


  • Dual credit option. Some universities will grant college credit for work done in high school. Contact the high school's counselor for more information.

  • Research three-year degree programs. Many bachelor of arts or science degrees can be completed in three years, saving thousands of dollars.

  • Attend community college for general courses. This is a route I took. Sometimes, scholarships can be easier to get since competition is not as strong.

  • Be persistent. Show how sincere you are about obtaining the info you need. It also shows your passion and how hard you work, making someone more willing to help.
