How To Graduate With Less Debt posterwith date and graphic of a person carrying a boulder labeled DEBT

The average student in social work typically graduates after borrowing more than students in other colleges and schools. There are many reasons for this. But the real issue is how to hold down the indebtedness of BSW and MSW students.
If you’re like the vast majority of America’s future social work professionals, chances are you’ll need to borrow a significant amount in student loans to pay for your higher education. But there are several ways to keep your college debt more affordable than it otherwise might be. This workshop, by a 41-year advisor/educator in the nation’s student loan programs and UT’s ex-financial aid director, will help you achieve this goal by acquainting you with strategies and tools to use while enrolled at UT and when your new career gets underway. Bring your laptop, and don’t miss it!
This workshop offers various strategies that can help do this, and strategies you can implement while in school and soon after you graduate. Come work with Tom Melecki on October 30 from 12:30-1:30 in SSW Room 2.140!
