Start writing a post

A college education is a powerful tool that opens many doors and experiences. If you’d like to gain the collegiate experience, it’s never too late to go. However, there are many people who forgo college because they assume they can’t afford it. However, there are many strategies you can implement in order to experience a college education and pay for it.


With access to the internet, there’s virtually so much information at your fingertips. There are thousands of dollars unclaimed because people don’t apply for the scholarships. Go online and visit sites that share all the latest available scholarships and deadlines. Just like you brush your teeth every day, apply for scholarships every day. Set aside at least 30 minutes to find new scholarships and complete the process of applying. Some scholarships might need a letter of recommendation or transcripts. Whatever is needed, turn it in and claim free money.


There’s nothing wrong with working while you’re in school. In many cases, you could easily start a side hustle that pays for your classes, textbooks and more. For example, you could consider getting into the beauty industry as a hairdresser or an eyebrow specialist. In these positions, you could work for two hours every day and make more money than some people make in a week.


Joining the military can be an incredible opportunity. You’ll gain a wide variety of skills you might’ve never received in any other circumstance. Learning how to work with military cables, advanced software and technologies are awesome skills that you can keep with you for the rest of your life. Plus, these skills will look fantastic on your resume. It’s also the perfect way to get your education paid for. Many people use the GI bill to help them gain an education, new skills and new experiences in a military setting.

Good Grades

If you did a great job in high school, most colleges will give you scholarship money. They’ll cover your tuition and room & board. Depending on how well you did, some schools even throw in an amazing stipend for you to use at your discretion.

These are the top four strategies to consider. There are other strategies that people use so don’t be afraid to do your research. After all, once you get into school, you’ll be doing a lot more research to pass those classes. Why not get a head start and take care of the financial research now? It’ll only work to benefit you in the future so that you can have a dynamic experience.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
