Need help paying for school

  1. I have looked through the threads for financial aid but I don't qualify for traditional scholarships and loans. I am a post graduate certificate seeking student (FNP). I have a Master's in nursing education. Scholarships and government loans are for degree seeking students. I am getting desperate. The few scholarships available are so hard to get and I need help now. I can't work full time and do this. I only lack 4 classes I have maxed out my credit cards trying to pay for this.

    Why not take out private loans? Private loan companies such as Sallie Mae, Citiassist, etc. Check out your local banks and ask about educational loans. If you look hard enough, there is always a private bank willing to give you a loan for educational purposes.

    Would the grad plus loans apply to you?

    Try the "Tuition Answer" loan from Sallie Mae. My friends say the loan was quick and easy to get, goes directly to you, and doesnt require the school to certify you.
