Making College More Affordable

Work While You Learn

AmeriCorps: This service program is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service and allows people of all ages and backgrounds to earn help paying for education in exchange for a year of service.

Part-Time Employment: It may not be possible to earn enough to cover all your own college costs, but a part-time or summer job can help reduce the amount you'll need to borrow. School employment offices can help you find a job on or off campus.

Work-Study: On some campuses, work-study or student assistant programs help students find career-related jobs. Jobs funded through need-based work-study programs may reduce the amount of student loans you have to borrow.

Tuition Assistance Benefits: Many agencies, organizations and businessesTAB 2022 across Oklahoma provide tuition assistance benefits to help their employees pay for higher education. Visit to learn more .
