(GivenUs.com) – It doesn’t matter how old you are, or how much education you’ve had in the past, it’s never too late to head to college. After all, furthering your education enriches your life both mentally and financially. But before you take the leap, it’s important to consider long-term goals — including how you’re going to pay for it.
Dave Ramsey explains how to do it the right way, and why there’s no time like the present, in this video:
The Two Questions You Must Ask
- What do I want for my future? Is it money, knowledge, or social interaction? Choose a major that fits those needs. If it’s money, and you’ll be older when you start off, consider a career that is expected to pay more upfront with good benefits. If you have a bit of time, it may be better to play the long game.
- Do I need financial assistance? Ask the admissions office if they offer financial aid, including scholarships and grants. Nearly all accredited institutions offer them at some level; don’t be afraid to take advantage!
- Can I handle the financial strain? Keep in mind how much debt you’ll take on going to college. The more tuition you can get covered, the better.
Now is the time to enrich your life. A secondary education brings feelings of knowledge and satisfaction. Choose a major that will bring you joy and financial peace of mind.
