I'm 19 and transferred to a university. I left my community college with no debt. At my university due to my living situations I need to work full time. With that being said I have to have the vast majority of my classes online.
The university I attend charges almost $200 more per credit hour if the class is online. I just got my first bill and it's totalling around $7,000 (Without the FASFA), I already paid for my books and whatnot.
As for work I don't entirely make the best amount of money. I make $14.50 and as much as I'd like to say no overtime I do get it, but would rather not like to include a variable. So I guess I'm making 25 - 27K a year.
I want to get out of this debt as quickly as I can. How should I do this? Should I start payments right away, or wait for my actual career? Is there interest on this debt? I was informed there was no interest until 6 months of either being considered a drop out, or upon graduating.
