Paying for Graduate School W/ Cash

May 13th, 2008 at 09:12 am

I registered for 2 classes for the fall quarter and I'm wondering if I saved could I pay for it in cash versus taking out another loan?

I have three plans in the works right now.
1. I applied for 5 assistantships that would cover the cost of tuition. I have yet to hear back.

2. I applied for a regular staff position that would cover tuition.

3. My current employer does tuition reimbursements up to $1,500 after 6 months of employment. I've been here 2 months.

In the meantime I am thinking of starting a tuition fund because I'm tired of loans.

    Excellent idea! Even if you can't cover the whole cost, the more cash you put towards it the better. Good luck!

    I am doing the same about paying for my graduate textbooks! My DS also has a monthly budget plan for his college tution and expenses. He loves that he is prepared way ahead of his tution deadline date.

    Take it from someone who has finish grad school and went the student loans route...it sucks. Pay off as much as you can now or in cash. Student loans are a good thing, but they still have interest rates adn fees with them. I wish I didn't have my student loan debt.

    If you can pay cash it would certainly help. If you can find an employer to pay your tuition for you, now or later, that's even better.
