If you missed last week's explanation on WHY college is so expensive, be sure to check it out!
We couldn't agree more! Many students are able to make a much better life for themselves and their future family by pursuing alternative routes to a career--like apprenticeships. They gain valuable skills without taking on unnecessary debt. Frequently, this means they experience much more freedom in life than their college degreed peers who are strapped with debt!
For those who are college bound and are considering those government subsidies (i.e. student loans), please think it through very carefully. Accelerate University could be a much more valuable alternative! We are able to design fully accredited college degrees that cost less than $15K from beginning to end. Even better than that, 2/3 of that degree is basically pay as you go for:
- AU Subscription
- Test Prep Resources
- Test Fees
Once it is time to enroll at a college to complete the degree, most of our clients only need to complete just a few more courses. The entire cost for doing so is typically around $5,000 and can be paid over the course of the year. Many students are able to utilize their 529 College Savings Fund or other savings to cover this. Other students who have at least a part-time, quality job and are still living at home with low expenses are able to save this amount fairly quickly. Loans or other subsidies don't ever have to enter the picture. Best of all, the overwhelming majority of Accelerate University clients graduate with a fully accredited degree and zero debt!
