The Burden of Debt

With more and more schools increasing tuition fees, many students are faced with huge debts upon graduation or even when they drop out of a program of studies.  Health training and allied health training can cost up to $24,000 at some institutions.  Additionally, if graduates are late or delinquent in paying back the loans, interest starts to mount.  If the loans are not paid back in a timely manner, an employer is asked by the Federal government, the bank, or the Department of Education, to garnish salaries until the loan is repaid.

One does not have to take this route for training.  Many schools charge lower fees, have fewer fees, faster training and collect small weekly or monthly payments as you progress through your program.  When you graduate and get a job, all the salary goes to you.  None of your salary has to go to paying back huge loans.

In recent years the media has reported on countless cases where people with school loans, who, after years of interest payments, are now saddled with debt in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.  How can they ever repay these loans?  How can one feel economic security with debts like these?  How can school graduates plan to have and maintain a family with debt like this?

It is possible to attend a NY State licensed school that does not load you up with debt.  Time and time again we meet good, hardworking people who enter programs that burden themselves  with debt simply because they did not do their research and explore the alternatives.

So do yourself a huge favor and take the time to research the many different places where you can get your allied health training.  Compare prices before you enroll, select a career program that has been approved by the NY State Education Department and then chose the programs that are the least expensive and that allow you to graduate with no debt.
