Resources: Money for college

Written by Amina Isakovic

We all know that Syracuse University tuition has been rising 5% per year, and with this economy and recession most of us are already struggling to pay our tuition. Maybe you have used up all of your parents college savings or you had loans from the beginning, but still have one or two more years to invest in your diploma. Where do you go for resources?

One of the first places to look at is the College Planning Network, a website that guides you through different steps of attaining money for college. It helps with student positioning, cash flow planning, and much more. Check out the website here.

Another website that I used when I was applying for colleges was College Planning, which is actually a more detailed website from the College Planning Network, but based out of the Northwest. Since I am from Seattle, I found this to be a great site when I was a senior in college. Although most of the website doesn’t pertain to Syracuse students, it help direct us to the next step and what to look out for. Click here to browse the site.

And lastly, check out our very own Syracuse University Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships office and website. Although it seems impossible sometimes to win a scholarship or receive more financial aid, you’d be surprised how much our school really wants to help. Never think that you won’t receive any more money because your parents are in a high income bracket. Always ask!

Well Hope this helps and good luck in the years to follow.
