Perhaps your biggest concern about pursuing higher education - whether online or on-campus - is how you will pay for it. Fortunately, there are numerous options available to you.
Most students receive some form of financial aid to help pay for school. Financial aid may consist of scholarships, grants, loans, and participation in work-study programs. Tax credits and benefits for military personnel also aid in offsetting the cost of higher education. Additionally, private loans are available to make achieving your degree a reality. Loan consolidation can ease the burden of multiple loan payments by reducing costs and simplifying the payment process.
