I know how hard it has been for you to manage school, work, and the family.

Congratulations and I have the utmost respect for you to be able to pull it off.

So...........what are you going to do with all your free time, now?

Awsome! Congratulations Tracy. 0% sounds more like a grant than a loan-----. If it'* okay with you I'll have a Rye instead of a beer!!!

Grants are free money...no repayment required. Thats how my entire education was funded...thanks uncle sam!

Congrats on the Degrees! I've been playing with going back to totally change careers....from graphic designer to vet tech...but we'll see. Probably not

Congrats again!

0% is a Federally subsidized loan (they pay the interest). Grants are totally free and do not require any payback. Had some of those too. I've been paying on some of the Loans each year (Employer contributed $5k per year), so I was able to pay off all of the interest-bearing loans up front.

Online college is extremely expensive ... it'* up to $494 per credit hour PLUS $75 "Resource fee" per class (usually 3 credits) to cover E-Text books, On-Line Library, and other e-Resources. If you start with 0 credits...and go totally online for four years... it would cost $63,000 at today'* prices. They've increased tuition 4-10% each year for the past 4yrs...so in reality... a 4 year degree will cost $68,000.

Rye is fine Lugnut! I usually have Crown Royal on hand, maybe some Jim Bean or Jack Daniels are in order. And long gone are the days of Keggers... we've expired to prefering bottled beer on sale at Rite-Aid. Beer of choice in this area is either Budweiser or Labatt'* Blue. My preference is Molson Canadian, of course...

My loans were interest free (federally subsidized) until 6 months after I graduated. Then they started accruing intrest.

Oh no...seriously? I thought they were subsidized until you paid them off...crap!

Brian - the company only says "we highly value education"...they won't put it in writing... small, privately owned company.

Cody - Graduating is no big change for me since I've been working for a living for the past 20 yrs. Lol...
