The admissions department and the financial aid department is where you will find most of the college resources.  It is best to find out what financial resources are available by checking their endowment.  Most private colleges and universities have BIG ENDOWMENTS.  However here are the areas where you will find the money, Academic Scholarships, Athletic Scholarships, Employment and Loans.  Do your research first before you attend a school.  Find out the amount of money available at each school you are interested in attending and how much they are willing give you to attend there.  Go For The Dough!

Employer-paid tuition opportunities are available when you work for an organization.  In other words, any job you get, you should look to see if your employer would assist in covering college costs. The most popular programs are scholarships, tuition reimbursement, co-op and internshipsScholarships usually go to employees or children of employees.  Tuition reimbursement is when the company you work for allows you to take college courses and gives back the tuition cost upon you completing the course. The Cooperative education is a program that combines your college major’s requirements with off-campus job experience.  Internships are another method of getting monies from an employer. This is when the employer pays you while you gain experience in your major.  You must check with your employer  human resources department for these money opportunities.

If you are willing to sacrifice a few years of your life, or one weekend out of every month as a reservist, you definitely can cash in from the armed forces to pay college costs.  The military is not for everyone.  However, the benefits they offer is beyond paying for college.  I am still benefiting after graduating from college.  There are so many ways to skin this cat. From joining full-time, part-time as a reservist, attend their universities and joining a ROTC program while you are in college.  If you take out student loans, the military will pay for them after graduation.  AWESOME!  This way of getting funding for college is a great way to supplement your college cash flow.  Get all your detail information from your nearest recruiter.

The financial aid system creates unnecessary pressure on parents to pay college expenses for their college-bound student.  I truly believe that the burden should not be placed on the parents.  It should be on the student seeking a college education.  Here is why I beleive the student should embrace the responsibilty.  Firstly, a college education is not an investment.  It’s an individual (student) accomplishment.  A parent spending money toward a college education can not determine what their expected return would be. Parents cannot expect any monenary gain or reward. There goal is to build wealth and pass it down.  I aquired a college education and neither of my parents made a financial contribution.  It is the student’s dream.  A dream the student would have make a reality.

Secondly,  there are more financial opportunities today in the history of the financial aid process.  It would not be smart for a first-generation parent to try to finance a college expenses without having any financial resources or a middle-class parent to use there savings or retirement.  As  middle-class parents we will not assist in financiang our children’s college education.  If they want to achieve a college education, we will provide all the necessary information to guide them and give them emotional support.  You see, our goal is to pass down wealth we accumulated (to the next generation.) A college education, they will have to get on their own.  Period.  College-bound students need to HUSTLE! and make their dreams come true.

The financial aid process is govern by complicated and complex rules.  One would have to learn as much as possible to began its journey to capture as much money as possible.   For examples, in sports their are rules of the game but each coach applies their philosophy to win. In order to win successfully and consistently, you must have a winning philosophy.  For over 20 years I have helped thousands of families obtained MILLIONS of dollars because of my winning philosophy.   You must have a philosophy that allows you to adapt to the changes.  There are principles I apply  that allows families to be in a position to be successful.  Be ahead of the game and learn the financial rules and then learn from others who were successful in the financial aid game using a winning philosophy.

There are BILLIONS of traditional college funds available (about $300 billion dollars according to Octamoron Associates) each year for college-bound students.  Seriously.  I am talking about monies you don’t have to pay back.  Check out these numbers.  There are about 400 million people in the United States.  It only requires a half of billion (500 million dollars)  out of the 300 billion dollars to pay everyone that is a citizen and eligible non-citizen full tuition for four years.  Please note that everyone would get a million dollars (if the millions of dollars were distributed equally.)  There’s more than enough money.  Also, about 22 million students apply and use  financial aid each year.  Much less than 400 million living in the U.S.  So there is plenty of money to be had if you are knowledgable about the financial aid game.  The colleges are aware of these numbers that is why the cost of college continue to rise.  If the colleges were charging a million dollars to each student to enroll, based on what is available in college funding today, it wouldn’t scratch the surface.  There’s plenty of money available.  Hustle and get that money.
