Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

What are some less typical ways (the road not taken) to pay for student loans after graduating?

Besides joining the peacecore or working in low-income cities. How did you pay for your student loans? Did you do something out of the ordinary to pay for them? Variety of stories are welcome!!!!

Looking for creative ways and how you paid them fast (if you did).

Have an Answer?

I second Mike P's suggestion. It is not for jobs that you would typically think of either. For example, you can qualify for this if you have a job with state/federal government or employed by a college. So something to definitely look into!

I found this, but I have no personal experience with this nor do I know anyone that does. It's an interesting concept: crowdfunding for your educational expenses. So check it out and see if this could work for you!

I've attached a website that gives a few different options on what you can do to pay off your college loans. I personally think National Guard or Reserves is a good way to pay off loans plus you can squeeze in some benefits as well. If your worried about deployments with the way deployments are cutting back its a rare situation that you will even deploy.

Public Service Loan Forgiveness (from the federal government) can be a good option. In some instances, working full time for a nonprofit organization (not necessarily in a low-income city) can result in debt forgiveness. Details are here on the official site:
