Studying in USA is a lot more expensive than in the Philippines. If you plan to pursue your education here in America, here are some tips for you.

  1. Try looking at Technical or Community Colleges. They are cheaper than big universities. You need to have a special skill you can use to look for jobs. Try not to get useless degrees or certifications.

  2. As much as possible, do not get a student loan. Student loans are high in interest and you will be paying for it for a long time. A lot of students here in USA graduate from a 4-year college degree with $100,000.00 student loan debt. And most of them can’t even get jobs right after college.

  3. Check if you qualify for a scholarship or financial aid at Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
