ABOUT THE BOOK
Tuition rates across America are expected to increase as a result of education cutbacks. This has dissuaded many people from obtaining a degree or certificate. It can be very challenging to pay for education today if you're unfamiliar with the system; luckily, paying for college tuition is as easy as understanding what colleges do to cut costs for students.
Colleges offer affordable options, such as allowing students to test in place of taking a course, offering smaller chunk size payment plans, maintaining higher credit transfer rates, and offering favorable loans and financial aid. This guide is designed to help you understand how you can afford tuition, regardless of your financial state. By knowing which types of colleges are the most expensive and what financial options are available to you, you’ll be able to figure out the least expensive way to pay for tuition.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
As you can see, it’s important to be creative and do thorough research in order to survive in the current system. Here’s a list of tools to get you started.
Tuition Installment Plans
Colleges require prompt payment before the quarter begins. However, when you need to stretch your dollar to accommodate schools, it is wise to turn to college tuition installment plans. If you are capable of paying a third of your tuition every month, for three months, you can effectively buy yourself time while you complete your courses. This will allow you to pay bills as they come, instead of having to rely on savings to get by, after you have paid a large sum up front.
Installment plans can usually be arranged at your college's payment office. A fee of $15 is usually required for this service, though is not a particular standard. This pay may be tacked on top of the tuition. When this payment plan is arranged, you are usually required to pay the first payment up-front. You will not be allowed to continue until this is done. If you wait too long, your registered classes will get bumped for someone else who has already paid. Be careful if you are not able to pay this bill. Schools will send you into collections if you do not formally disenroll your courses.
