Paying for Room and Board at College Here are some things to consider when trying to come up with a plan to pay for room and board at college:

  • Inexpensive schools - State schools in your state are going to be less expensive than private schools and moving out of state for school. Note that often a Private school will provide scholarships to offset this difference to encourage attendance.
  • Scholarships - Literally free money. Many organizations have scholarships, civic orgs, churches, social clubs, companies, some companies even provide money to students of employees. Work Study - There are programs on campus that provide a job (teaching assistant, library, various offices) that provide a small amount of cash and discounts on fees.
  • Job - Getting a job off campus can provide income. Hotel clerks and night shifts can provide work without interfering with classes. And opting for evening classes can provide more flexibility in scheduling.
  • Loans - While they do leave you with debt on graduation, they are a viable option and the interest rates are very reasonable.
