In a few months, I will graduate with my 4th college degree (!). I’ve never had a student loan of any variety nor did my parents pay for my college tuition. I graduated from college debt-free. You can do it too!
Several family members and other real-life acquaintances have asked me for advice on how I stayed out of debt while pursuing educational opportunities, so I decided to do a blog post about it even though this doesn’t quite fit with my usual themes. I’m not an expert on funding your college education; but, now that I’ve finished 1 associate’s degree, 2 bachelor’s degrees, and almost 1 master’s degree–I think I may have a few words of wisdom for others who are just starting on the journey.
There’s no secret to graduating debt-free. All it takes is a commitment to do so. You absolutely CAN graduate from college without debt. It is not an impossible dream. Student loans are an optional part of life, and you can opt to not have them. There is no reason to go into debt for an undergraduate degree, and most graduate degrees can be earned without debt too.
