Many people who want to get a college degree worry about how they’ll pay for it, and rightfully so. It would be irresponsible not to consider this part of the decision, especially if you have other financial obligations. Read about two common concerns that students raise and how Averett University can help.
“I have kids in school or college.”
We know you want to be a good role model for your children by going back to school. You might think it’s best to wait until they graduate so you can devote more time to them and/or avoid the extra financial burden. You’re not alone. Many parents feel this way, yet those who plunge ahead quickly discover the example they set for their children far outweighed their initial fears. Plus, many found that with a degree, they could advance in their careers sooner, which brought financial benefits to their families.
Averett University’s online degree programs are made for busy adults who want to be their best for their children and themselves. Our flexible, affordable options and financial aid allow you to lay out a path to your degree based on your needs, and a dedicated student success coach will help you stay on course. We can’t wait to see your entire family cheering as you walk across the stage and accept your degree!
“I’m buying a house.”
Wow, congratulations! Buying a house is the biggest transaction most of us will ever make and we know the financial part can be nerve-wracking. At Averett University, we’ve watched many students buy and sell homes during our 30 years of offering adult degree programs, so we get it. What’s amazing is that most students’ concerns about taking on too many financial obligations quickly dissipated once they talked to our financial aid and student accounts teams. They learned what financial aid options were available at Averett and found solutions that were right for them and their families.
Our goal at Averett University is to put top degree programs within students’ financial reach. That way, when you’re ready to buy a home or undertake another major transaction, you won’t have to choose between that and your education. By the way, after you’re all moved in, send us your new address so we can update our records!
