Caps & Gowns All Smiles No Frowns:
The Keys to Earning a Debt Free Degree

Life after graduation can be a fulfilled dream or an unbearable nightmare. Like Jordan, you’ve intended for it to be filled with times of joy and most importantly financial stability. After all, we go to college to be able to obtain stable careers, right? Although this may be our dream, many students who are preparing to attend college do not prepare for the financial commitment that is attached. For this reason, the student loan crisis in America has grown to an over $1.5 Trillion industry which ultimately creates an additional obstacle in obtaining the financial stability you dream of.

“If we only dream of financial stability for ourselves and our children and do not prepare, we will subject our paychecks to the plague of student loan payments for decades.” -Jordan Green-Ellis
