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