Earning and acquiring money even with financial aid is quite troublesome and takes effort. Many students come to realize that they will need to receive some extra money to help them with college. While the price of obtaining a college degree is rising there are many students who do not complete college. Time is one of the main factors to cope with while attending college, because of its value students must learn to spend it wisely as well. When students receive financial aid it is a must that they don’t go spindle through it all.


While a student attends college, one might consider work-study. That is a job on the college campus that may vary to an individual’s preference. It pays well about more than minimum wage, and it is reliable too. It saves the student on gas and traveling back and forth. This is one option that a student will need to check up on early because there will be multiple students who will and could take that place. While working on campus the student will learn to be aid enabling him/her to guide other students in the right financial direction at college.

Another option would be to find a job outside of college to help the student out. Some student may get help from parents or family members who are able to help them pay for college. Saving the financial aid money that a student receives is a solution to many of the financial aid problems. Don’t spend all of it because it might be needed for the next semester of college. Only buy what is needed like the necessities for college which is food, clothing, and school supplies nothing extra.

If a student applies these tips and advice to their career they will be focused and financially stable in their college years. All in all, these were some college financial aid advice tips that will have a dramatic experience in improving a students’ college life.

Just do it!

Most college students are full time. When you have that on your shoulders it is hard to pay for college. You may not have the option to work because of the schedule you would have to work around. Not being very flexible in scheduling can affect a lot of factors in trying to obtain a job.

When I was in my school in Alaska I went to school full time and worked full time. It was tough, harsh objective. But I was successful in paying my monthly bills in which lowered my overall student payments when I graduated. I lived with my parents at the time, so I had it a lot easier than most students. So I used that opportunity to work and do school full time without the stress of other bills.

This essay is focused mainly to first time college students that still live at home. Take that opportunity of not having those extra bills and pay your college off as you go. Don't pass that up or you will regret having that much more on your shoulders in the end run. Good luck everyone and do you best!
