I just graduated from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting (9/15/16). It took me exactly 1,837 days (5 years,10 days) to earn that degree. I spent $24,708.00 on tuition alone, excluding books, fees, and living expenses. No I didn’t live with parents and no they didn’t provide money towards my education, or living expenses for that matter.
Yet, I am walking away from school with $0.00 in student loan debt. I provided for myself, got married and had a baby (money well spent I might add) during those five years too.
How did I do it? Here are my 5 tips to earn your degree debt free; the ultimate guide to pay your way through college.
