Based on 15 years of experience and eight years of research, Debt Free College is today's answer for students who wish to avoid financial bondage. College students will be offered over $100,000 in loans with simply a signature and student ID. Debt Free College is the only book on the market that risks taking on the establishment to reveal the real cost of the PLUS and Stafford Loans and how to avoid them with scholarships, grants and alternative funding sources. This new book provides access to thousands of scholarships and grants worth millions plus key alternative funding programs. Clearly the information presented offers students a light at the end of the graduation tunnel focused on debt avoidance.
Debt Free College includes critical information on submitting essays, selecting a college, service cancelable student loans and even a free computer analysis by return mail. The book is filled with financial helps for every student including a detailed chapter on money management (campus credit cards, college checking accounts and an easy to follow spending plan). In addition, there are chapters on what schools look for, special grants and scholarships, prepaid tuition plans, the current tax revisions, the latest military options plus charts and graphs illustrating the amount of savings need to fund a college education in the future.

With few exceptions, parents do not have a special savings account established to finance their children's education. With families already weighted down with multiple car payments, vacation clubs, credit card debt, the shrinking dollar and rising taxes, the overall burden of paying for college today has shifted from the parents to the student. America's bookstores have many books on college funding, but only Debt Free College reveals the real cost behind the 'so-called low interest' student loans and how to avoid them.From the Back Cover:
Students can graduate without a millstone around their neck if they: 1) remain flexible in the college selection process, 2) establish a workable spending plan, 3) seek diverse financial sources, 4) use self-control in managing credit cards and college checking accounts, and 5) avoid Stafford loans.
