January, 2018 Newsletter

It's never too early to think about how to pay for your education. According to Student Loan Hero, Americans owe over $1.48 trillion in student loan debt, and the average Class of 2016 graduate owes a whopping $37,172. This month, we’re offering tips to help you minimize your bill and get the funding you need to take the next step toward your career in health. And don't forget to take advantage of recruitment events, like ADEA GoDental's upcoming event in March (link below), which can help you choose the right school the first time and avoid the added costs some students incur when they transfer.

Filing a FAFSA Pays

86% of families filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) last year, and with good reason: The FAFSA can give students access to $150 billion in grants, work-study funds and federal student loans.

Get Creative

In addition to filling out your FAFSA, there are other outside-of-the-box methods for saving money on college expenses, from work study to becoming an RA.

Registration is now open for the 2018 ADEA GoDental Recruitment Event! This is a huge opportunity to gain “insider” knowledge and tips on how to be a successful dental school applicant, featuring over 50 U.S. dental school exhibitors. NEW this year and exclusively for #GoDental18 – attend a Mock Dental School Interview! Attendees will get the chance to experience first-hand how a dental school interview works. See you this March 17 in Orlando!

Save Money on Expensive Textbooks

Often ringing up at $300 each, buying a set of new textbooks every semester can easily break the bank. Consider borrowing, renting, sharing or exchanging to get a break on this expensive college investment.

Be Wary of These Financial Obstacles

Planning is key when it comes to graduating without debt. Get started today so you can pay off consumer debt before getting student loans, have time to digest all of your private loans’ terms and set yourself up to keep track of how much debt you have.
