Answer to Question about Student Debt?
March 19, 2015
Adam L. asks….
Q. My student debt is out of control. Is Illinois the highest in student loans?
A. We’re pretty high, 11th on the list. But consider this: four year colleges with room and board required racks up student and parent debt like crazy. However, one can reduce that debt by going to a Community College for a couple of years and then transferring to a 4 year college. I did that and my diploma states University of Illinois, not two years here and three years there.
Also, you can learn a trade by attending a Community College and earn certificates or a two year degree. Many careers require only that. See your counselor for more details. Click Here for Link to Article/Chart
