College Life Has Arrived!

College Life Has Arrived!

How to Save For it and How to Enjoy it With Mission Tuition!

 

More and more stories are being posted on the internet and appearing on the money management shows every night that are really underlining the fact that Mission Tuition is a must-have that has come along at exactly the right time.  What do I mean?  The papers and news programs have been going on and on about the world’s financial future, and have done many a story regarding the debt that occurs when students have to borrow to the hilt in order to get that college education that they’ve always dreamed of.  Not only do they want that education to achieve a greater success and receive more money in the long run, but they also know that their dreams begin by walking through those college doors.  And many have simply not been able to save enough to make that college journey without having to deal with bank loans and decades of future debt.

 

It is a matter of ‘life over debt;’ it is a matter of finding a way to achieve that life you’ve always dreamed of without falling apart at the seams and giving your first two hundred paychecks back to the bank.  When I first began hearing about Mission Tuition, I was actually quite surprised that this was a ‘new concept,’ and that someone had not thought of this before now – considering how important college is in life.  Briefly, for those who have not been listening to me over the past few months (I’m sure that’s just one or two of you, of course), Mission Tuition has partnered with companies and retailers that everyone out there already shops at on a weekly basis!  Best Buy, Lowes, Walgreens, Target, Walmart – the staples that we all use every day to supply our family with food, clothing and the basic needs of life – are working with Mission Tuition in a way that helps college students!

 

Mission Tuition saw a need and created a proven method to save for your child’s education without touching any retirement accounts, or stressing out over where the money is going to come from!  Signing up for a free account with Mission Tuition makes sure that when the time comes, there are funds for college so that your child does not have to go into debt for the next decade.  Every time you make one of your regular daily purchases on the Mission Tuition website, you get money back that is deposited directly into an “educational savings account” being held at Wells Fargo.  When you’re shopping in the store, you still receive these amazing rewards, cash-back, coupons and discounts, but it is completely up to you whether the money goes into the account or into your pocket.  The point is that the more you save builds up, allowing you the time to research and find the perfect 529 account to invest in with your funds, so that the money is there when your child is ready to pack his or her bags and head off to the dorm.

 

Another supreme upside of Mission Tuition is the fact that they are a company that assists families.  Data, information, statistics, articles, stories, tips – Mission Tuition finds a way to cover each and every need, interest, fear and question you have when it comes to the world of colleges, financial planning, and even how to help your child when they leave home and enter that new – slightly scary – world.  You see, it’s not only a list of say, toothbrush, computer, clothes, and bedding that you are getting together for your child when they’re about to leave home, a parent must also try to give that emotional support.  A child who has lived with you and has known every day since birth that you are there for them no matter what, is about to go out on their own, and they need a new source of courage and strength that they must find deep inside themselves.

 

How can you help with that emotional skill set, and help your child immerse themselves in this new life?  Well, there are a few suggestions and tips that can help you teach your child about the changes they are about to experience.  Make sure they know that they can always call to check in and also call when they’re lonely, but they need to be weaned a bit so that they can learn to make decisions on their own.  They also need (like my daughter) to learn how to wake up on time without assistance from Mom or Dad.  This is their world to screw up or succeed in now, and parents will not be there to get them out of bed.  They need to take responsibility for their academic work – pass or fail, this is all up to them now.

 

One of the most difficult aspects of college is how to go about meeting new people, especially if you’ve grown up in a small town with basically the same friends surrounding you your whole life.  The college student will now be exposed to things that run the gamut of absolutely cool to unpleasant or objectionable, and they need to know how to handle both with ease, grace and the ability to make the right decisions.

Also, becoming included in campus activities will help them to meet people and enrich their college experience.  Many students have regrets over not going further out of their comfort zones during their four years at college, so delving into things and activities that you haven’t done thus far could be a whole lot of fun.  And learning how to ask for help is essential for a new college student, as well.  Professors, TA’s – these are the ones who can help academically as well as aid in finding new students activities and information on everything from sports to religious life on campus to medical services that are available.

 

Graduating high school is a magnificent experience, but what most people don’t remember is that it is also a lot like watching a relationship die.  SATs, essays and college applications are a thing of the past now that acceptance has come. Receiving that letter from the college that says you have a new home is exhilarating, but also a time of fear, when you know you will be throwing yourself into something brand new.  The time for procrastination has come to an end, and adulthood is on the horizon.

 

Everyone – every child – should be allowed to have that horizon, which is exactly what Mission Tuition wants to help with.  By opening up that free Mission Tuition account and going shopping right now, you can save for your child’s moment in the sun.  Mission Tuition has built up a coalition of thousands of merchants nationwide, and several of those companies offer savings opportunities on your total purchase that will be a huge help to your child’s future.  And remember, when you shop in-person, in the store, you receive their own advertised discount right there on the spot!  AND, once you’ve become a member, Mission Tuition also offers valuable coupons for in-store discounts on dining, groceries, shopping and entertainment. Simply log in, select from your favorite stores and begin saving.  For even greater savings, you also have the option of applying for a new “Mission Tuition MasterCard” that will earn you additional cash rewards on all your purchases.

 

College is coming, and the time for letting go of the ‘apron strings’ has arrived.  Your child is ready to take that next step, and you can start saving for that moment right now by signing up with Mission Tuition!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.
