Learn more at higherscorestestprep.com/92.We are in for a special treat on this episode of The College Checklist Podcast with our first three-peat guest, Jodi Okun! Jodi has a wealth of knowledge on all things paying for college – including student loans.

In the past, Jodi has helped us understand the bird’s eye view of the financial aid process, the changes that came to the FAFSA in 2016, and now she’s back to help us understand how families can wisely leverage student loans to help pay for college.

For some families, taking out student loans for college is not an option; for others, loans can be a viable way to bridge the gap between the free cash for college that you’ve earned and the remaining balance of your tuition.

I encourage all families to start by exploring the free money options out there – merit aid and grants and private scholarships – first. Then, once you’ve accrued as much free money for college as possible, consider student loans.

Jodi is a great guide as we learn about this sometimes necessary part of the paying for college puzzle. In this episode, Jodi gives us an overview of the many ways to pay for college with particular emphasis on the different types of student loans, including information on loans for graduate school.

In this episode, Debbie provides tips and several excellent resources parents can access to aid them in planning.

Hear how my student earned $160,000 in college scholarships in Episode 85 of The College Checklist Podcast. Listen now at higherscorestestprep.com/85.Getting into college is hard. Winning college scholarships is even harder. I am so proud to have my student Darius and his mother Shawnae on to talk about their family’s college admissions journey that included a strategic approach to financial aid.

Their family’s open, honest conversation about the cost of college gave Darius the full view of what it was going to take to get into and pay for his education. That translated into motivation and allowed Darius to achieve tremendous success on his path to college.

It’s one thing for our expert guests to share how to win scholarships for college. It’s another thing to hear from a family who has actually done it.

I’m so honored that Darius and Shawnae came on to share their journey to admissions and scholarship success at Darius’s dream school, Wake Forest.

I hope their story inspires you to work hard and reap the rewards too!
