There have been a host of negative and nasty events surfacing against many colleges and universities of late. Thus, it has become imperative for parents to not only secure the right college for their children, but to make sure that any possible lasting debt associated with a college degree is minimized.
Have heart dear parent and student as help is on the way! There are remedies and avenues out on the horizon where one can enter college or university and exit with a degree…and no staggering debt. “Debt Free Degree” by Anthony ONeal contains the tools and examples needed in order to provide a blueprint for financial and academic success (2019, 196 pages, Ramsey Press).
Right up front, the issue of preparation from a Christian perspective is brought to the table. Far too many young people (and their parents) seem to forget that getting into a college or university is a marathon--not a sprint. For students, preparation begins in middle school--meaning the sixth or seventh grades. Also, ONeal brings the twin terrors of budgeting and standardized testing into clear focus, with a lot of practical tips. The author makes it clear that he has ‘been there’, so some of his lessons have a twist of humor and a sprinkle of ‘A-ha’ moments. In addition, there are scripture references and website addresses for parents and students.
“Debt Free Degree” also includes a forward from sage financial expert Dave Ramsey. In the book itself, chapters include: “How To Pay Cash For College” and “How To Be Successful In College. The bonus? Several chapters which cover each of the four years of the college experience, some of the pitfalls, and the victory paths available for the student in each of these years. Author Anthony ONeal has provided a work that is right on time. You can secure this work from your favorite electronic book source, or through Ramsey Press.
