DEALING WITH RISING TUITION AND MAKING THE GRADE
Tuition pressures are mounting for today’s post-secondary students. As stated in an article by Radio Canada International, nearly half of the post-secondary students in Canada are worried that they won’t be able to pay for the tuition and living expenses for the upcoming school year. This figure comes from a survey conducted by CIBC.
Many parents cannot afford to cover their children’s school expenses, or they can only cover part of them. Parents expect that all or part of the financial burden will be covered by their children working part-time jobs, and by taking out a bank or government loan if need be.
According to the same survey, most students expect to pay between $10,000 and $30,000 for school and personal expenses this year. Furthermore, the financial help students expect to get from their parents is less than the year before. This year, students expect parents to cover 22 percent of their school related expenses, down from 33 percent last year.
The key realization here is that more and more students will have to take on part-time jobs to meet their financial obligations, and they will have to do this while handling a course load. Time, as much as money, is a key consideration students must face while going through post-secondary education. They need money to pay for their school related expenses, often accomplished by taking on part-time jobs, and they also need enough time in which to do these jobs, as well as complete their coursework. It is conceivable to find ways to make more money, but time is a finite resource – you can’t make more of that.
Students can spend the necessary time they need to finish their coursework, but as a result they might not be able to work as much at a job to make the money they need; which can lead them to a bad place. Alternatively, they can spend more time working at a job to make the money they need, but as a result they might not be able to complete all their coursework. This can also lead them to a bad place – but in this case there is a solution, and that is having a company like Homework Help Canada help you out with your coursework.
