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 businesses across Oklahoma provide tuition
assistance benefits to help their employees pay for higher
education. Visit OKhighered.org to learn
