Cutting College Expenses
Instead of looking for more money to help pay college expenses, students often forget that there are also ways to trim their costs.
For example, while tuition and fees are fixed and can’t be reduced, if money is tight, be sure every credit counts. Only take and pay for course credits that will help you graduate on time. Also, try to buy all required textbooks used instead of new. Then, if possible, sell your books back to the bookstore at the end of each semester.
Finding ways to cut college expenses is a lot like getting your actual degree–it’s time consuming now, but will pay off in the long run.
The Sustainable University of Redlands Farm (SURF) is a natural farm in its beginning stages, but already grows and sells fresh vegetables to Bon Appetit, the food management company on campus.
