In this time of economic crisis, student loans are being critically evaluated for their contribution to putting an entire generation in debt and unable to move forward to traditional markers of maturity. College without Compromise puts forth the convincing data that college is still very much "worth it," but provides paths to obtain a degree without dooming students to decades or more of debt. Students will examine their current finances, what they wish to gain from college, how much counseling oversight they need, flexibility, learning style, and educational background in order to come up with which of the five plans is best for them. Learn how to go about the traditional path, as well as the "independent (year standing)" plans which progress yearly with the independent accumulation of college credits. Chapters provide a general overview of terminology, admissions procedures, GenEd requirements, financial aid, CLEP, DSST, AP, online college, dual enrollment, and more. 154 pages, softcover.
