Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

As for as grad school financing, how does all of this work, especially with trying to move out of state and not being able to work?

I am from Alabama and hope to go to grad school out of state, but I as far expenses are concerned and not being able to work once I get into grad school... I don't see it possible. I want to become a physician assistant.

Have an Answer?

I was going to suggest what Veronikha suggested. The other option is to find a professional level job with a company that is willing to pay for graduate school. What types of jobs could you get with your current degree? If you could find one with a hospital they may have tuition assistance.

Also, I live in a very rural area (ND) and there are programs that will forgive any loans or pay tuition for any medical professionals willing to work in a rural area for a certain number of years. Could be worth it if those opportunities exist where you are!

You should be looking for teaching assistantships or graduate assistantships. graduate schools offer them though they could be limited.
my advice is to contact a professor or the department you want to get a degree from nd ask them about it. professors (depending on the field) get funding to support research, hence, funding to hire students to assist them with their research.

Assistantships allow you to get experience in the field you are in as much as get a stipend while school pays for your tuition while you work for them as a TA/GA
