Prepping for College with Sallie Mae

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sallie Mae for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I can't believe that school is about to start for so many next month! I remember those days--I had a checklist a mile long of things to do. If you or someone you know is going to attend or is attending college, it's definitely time to think of Ways to Pay for College.

When I was in school, I considered my options to pay for college. For my bachelor's degree, I used Student Loans. I did my research, finding out about interest rates and repayment terms. And I used Sallie Mae for mine. Not only can they give student loans, but they have so much advice, information, and tips about student loans. Like what? Well, did you know that you can start to repay your loans while you're still in school? Even a small payment, like $25, can help get that debt down when you graduate.

Some of my money-saving tips:

  • Don't get a loan for more than you need. Trust!
  • Consider staying in-state for school.
  • Buy used books whenever possible.
  • Avoid taking those unnecessary electives.
  • Check with the registrar's office for any unused scholarships that weren't applied for.
  • Find out your learning style(s) and use it to your advantage. Graduating on time saves money!

Hope these tips helped and don't forget to check out SallieMae.com!

  1. I miss my school days. I was totally one of those people who absolutely loved going to school.

  2. college is so expensive! money saving tips are always appreciated. i went to a junior college for about 2.5 years, then transferred to a state school. even though i went the least expensive route possible, i still had to get a couple of student loans. but it was worth it in the long run!

  3. It's such a great post! I hope that people take your suggestions seriously. I guess many people tend to get more than really needed, and after that have debts for a long time. It's sad. I really hope that education is there for many people, with the least possible pain. I feel lucky, because my parents paid for all my education, but many people want to study and they can't afford. It's sad, I wish everybody could study. It's, I repeat, a great post! denisesplanet com
