Hello, I'm not sure where you attend school or what field, but there are two great ways to attend graduate school for free or very cheap.

The first is as a teacher's assistant (TA). I see more of these spots in the sciences, but basically you aid the teacher, maybe by correcting assignments or teaching the occasional class. It's a lot of work, but typically pays tuition and a stipend.

The second is a route a I took, to find a company that pays for graduate school. I attended grad school online and it took my three years since I was also working, but totally worth it to not have loans. If you already have a professional job or are considering one, that is a good option.

Another option is looking for local scholarships, or scholarships that are unique to your field.
