Paying for College

It’s no secret, going to college is expensive.  However, there are a few things you can do to help decrease the burden of college tuition.

  1. Apply for Pell Grants through your school.  Pell Grant money does not have to be paid back and is awarded based on financial need.
  2. Get a job with a company that offers tuition reimbursement.  For example:  Apple, Home Depot, Publix, Best Buy, UPS, FedEx, Gap, and Verizon Wireless will help pay for their employees education.  Do a google search of businesses in your area to see which ones will offer this benefit.
  3. Attend a community college for the first two years.  The tuition cost at a community college is drastically cheaper.  Taking some of your classes at a community college will reduce the total amount you have to pay for your education.
  4. There are a few colleges that offer free tuition for all of their students.  The students are given jobs, at the school, to help offset cost not covered by financial aid.  A few of these schools include:  College of the Ozarks, Berea College, Curtis Institute of Music, Alice Lloyd College, Webb Institute, and Deep Springs College.

Stupid Question

About twenty years ago, I was sitting in a benefits meeting at work.  The speaker was explaining our new life insurance policy and closed with a time for questions.

The woman next to me raised her hand and asked, “While this life insurance policy cover me if I’m killed while in the act of committing a felony?”

My eyebrows when up and all sorts of stuff was running through my mind.  I was wondering what does she normally do during her off time.

That was the strangest question I have ever heard during a business meeting.
