My step son is off to college in September and he is so worried about student loans already. Lucky he’s just going to a state school.

    If he is on his own and has a job for a certain length time, he can apply for grants. Anyone too, can apply for scholarships. They’re a little lengthy but so worth the effort!

We have a small 529 plan for our youngest daughter and hopefully, if we do it right, we’ll have something saved up for her when it’s time for college.

I have heard of a lot of people getting more and more money from colleges. We also have a 529 plan for each kid

How about going to school part-time and working to pay for School ? Most people would love to go full-time but the reality is that school is expensive

We are hoping with son’s grade and the fact he is dual enrolling now his college expense will be lower. We are also hoping for scholarships.

Oh, this is such great information! I managed to get through college with just over $2,000 in debt, which is tiny compared to others. It’s a tough thing to do!

Having student loans can be a good thing and a bad thing, for sure.

Luckily, we saved enough for our kids’ colleges so we didn’t have to take out student loans for them. I don’t know how people deal with all that debt. How stressful.

This is wonderful timing. I’m on it! I will call my bank in the next 7 days and get a 529 plan for my sons.

I know that I’m all backed up with student loan debt. It is a scary bill to pay!
