Do you plan to work while attending school? If so, it’s a good idea to check with your employer’s human resources department about what education benefits might be available to you.
Up to 60% of employers in the U.S. offer some sort of tuition reimbursement plan. While coverage levels and contractual agreements vary by employer, tuition reimbursement plans are designed to cover higher education costs.
In addition, if you participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, such as 401k, you may be able to borrow from that account to help pay for school. Check with your plan administrator to learn more.
