Student Loans : Out of Debt & Into College

By: Adam Hefner

You've already learned what it is to owe money, and you haven't even gone to school yet. You're still trying to figure out how to escape your debt, and your options are running out.

Consolidating your debt with a bad credit student loan can help you study and get out of debt at the same time. Many young people get into debt because they have yet to learn money management, although debt can come in many forms and is sometimes unavoidable. Getting depressed about your debt won't help; you can start a new project and motivate yourself to finish college.

You do have the option of consolidating your debt and slowly working it off, putting all other projects on hold. Working off a debt on a tight budget is difficult, and working up a good credit history in the future can be put on the back burner. If you're not committed to finishing your studies now, this may be your best option.

If you're already in debt, taking out a student loan piles on more debt, but it does have its advantages.

A bad credit history can affect you your entire life. You will want to buy something on credit someday. Credit will be necessary if you ever want to own property, if you want to buy a car, or for various necessary household appliances, among other things. Your credit rating is improved by taking out and paying back loans, and in the future it will be harder to even get a loan. With a bad credit student loan, you will be paying a high interest rate, but you will be able to get lower interest rates in the future when your credit rating improves.

The obvious advantage of taking out a bad credit student loan is that you'll have the opportunity to study. Over time, working and studying, you'll get an education and pay back your debts, and living on a strict budget will be easier if you're too busy doing your homework to go to the mall. Getting a higher education will increase the number of jobs you can get, and you'll have a better chance of earning a good income later. It's a financial burden to get out of debt and study at the same time, but in the long run, you won't regret having finished college.

Being in debt is hard and getting out will be harder. If you're going to suffer working hard and living on a budget anyway, you might as well study and improve your future, rather than simply working to make up for your past mistakes.
