Ok this may be a touchy subject with many but since my finances are getting low and I can't find a job anywhere, I'd like to know how everybody is paying for college. Did you parents sponsor you or are you on a scholarship or are you working and studying at the same time? Do help me out with this..if I can't pay for college, I may have to drop out next semester.

I can get some money from my parents. Meanwhile, I also do part-time job in the college. As to the expensive intuition fee of the college,I am able to receive interest-free laons that are offered to the students with financial problems. As you said you can not pay for college and may have to drop out, in my opinion,you don't need to drop out, actually ,you can ask your parents to sponsor you or study hard and get scholarship or find a part-time job. As far as i know, some of students in our college can make some money from the part-time job and help them to continue their further study in the college.

When I was in college I received a scholarship from DOST. During that time I found a partime job from school which earned me little money as my allowance. I also joined a choir group because they also giving scholarship for students who have a best performance. Thank God I survived the very expensive tuition fee of our university.

maybe you can get a part time job and only enrol some of your subject. it is better than to drop out. they all say that education is precious.. for me my parent sponsored my study in college, i was a full time student coz my parents dont want me to have part time job so i can focus on my studies. i studied in a public school and every student has previledged for free education. in return we have to maintain a certain everage to be able to stay in the program. they say were scholars in that school coz we dont pay any tuition fees.. but its really hard there to study. at the end of every semester is evaluation and those who didnt pass will bid farewell to the collage they enrolled in.. but thankfully i passed my 4 year study there as scholars and my parents are proud of me and very happy coz they saved a lot money on my education.. happy mylotting..
