Imagine walking across a platform and receiving your college diploma, and you did it debt-free. It is possible to graduate from college without taking out student loans—but college is expensive, so you need a plan.
The average college graduate walks away with $35,000 in student loan debt, robbing them of their paycheck for decades.1 That’s because the student loan system is broken, and there are a lot of predatory players trying to trap you into a lifetime of debt. Taking on mountains of student loan debt is considered normal—but normal means being freakin’ broke! And being part of the student loan crisis doesn’t have to be your future. It’s time to be weird and join the movement of students who are graduating from college without debt.
In this video, Dave Ramsey and Anthony ONeal will guide you through the proven, step-by-step plan for graduating from college debt-free. Together, they debunk the myth that you need student loans in order to go to college, and they’ll answer questions about how to cash flow your degree.
You’ll also be inspired by students who put in the hard work, intentionality and grit to graduate from college (and earn advanced degrees) without debt. These “unicorns” will share their stories of how they scored free money for college—and how you can too. They share that the secret sauce to graduating college debt-free is going to an affordable school, working hard, and applying for scholarships and grants like it’s your job.
