Student loan to cover college AND cost of living?? ?2tena2012-11-05 22:30:02
I live in Michigan . I'd love to go back to school full time and enter a career that gladdens my life (unlike my current high voltage ) . I have about 1.5 years of schooling required to complete a bachelor's degree. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus The problem is that you have a mortgage , car payment , and some small loans , and I can not shrink right now (especially with the economy and the housing market in the state) . I am willing to give up a lot (cable , shopping , nightlife ) , but it can become a land poor college student right now . My husband is now in school full time, and I am the breadwinner for us . ( and that's okay - he does dean list every semester ) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I've heard of people taking student loans to cover their tuition and living costs , in order to go to school full time and accelerate their education timeline. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Is this true ? How can you get a student loan that covers not only the university , but the bills and cost of living , too? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus

This is my second year in school . I have completed so far and paid three quarters along Pell . This December will go to PA school . I'm not worried about the funds. The problem is that after receiving my scholarship even though you pay for my classes and books I am literally left with only $ 400 for the entire period . That's not much at all. Although I live at home with my parents who can not go to them for money , they can pay there own barley bills and rent . 4 days a week I will get hours in clinics and hospitals for PA school . I have no money at all . I know when I'll start school PA all over the place every day . I need money to move, eat and other accounts. It is bad enough as it is already and I have much fear of the future . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I have to get a car . Along with the price we will have to get a tag, insurance, etc. I have to have $ 2100 for PA school . I need $ 400 for the deposit and other tests that have to pay for licenses and I need to get to get my license .

Can I get student loans to help cover living expenses?0LINK 2012-11-04 17:08:20
I will be a freshman in college next year and I will be living in an apartment. I do plan to have a job, but I want to know if I can get extra money from loans to help cover living expenses? I am getting virtually nothing from FAFSA (my parents aren't helping me at all with college, but they have a very high income so FAFSA will only get me a couple hundred dollars) and have gotten some scholarship based on academics but I can't get anything need-based. My school doesn't require you to live in a dorm, but if you do, you have to get a specific meal plan or higher. The total cost of a dorm and food comes out to over a thousand dollars a month. I can't go back to my parents' house for winter break or the summer, so to live in a dorm I'd have to find a place to live during those times AND get a storage unit for stuff that won't fit in a dorm, etc. So please don't give me the "you should live in a dorm your first year" stuff because in my case it's just not going to work. Anyway, talking to students who currently live in apartments and taking into consideration costs like gas, phone, etc., I've found I can probably live off $800 per month in this area. It's been recommended that I start out working 15 hours per week when school is in session, which is 8 months. I can get $400 per month doing that, and I have some money in savings. Could I get a student loan to cover $300 per month for 8 months of the year, around $2500 total? Or can student loans only be used for housing if you live on campus?
Private Student Loan for Cost of Living?0Dre2012-11-04 15:41:46
I was enrolled in a college from 2007 - 2009, but at the time didn't have a permanent residency and did not qualify for FAFSA or private student loans. I finished my sophomore year, but was unable to return because i owed the school $15,000. I withdrew and i finally got my permanent residency in july and i am trying to return to school and finish my degree. I qualify for FAFSA to cover my entire tuition with a loan, but I need a loan to cover the $15,000 still owed from 2009. I spoke to the state attorney handling my case and he said he has done it so Sallie Mae pays the balance he is happy to certify the loan and clear me to attend this fall. Problem is, Sallie Mae doesn't appear to do loans for student debts that were more than 12 months ago. Would I be able to apply for the $15,000 as a "cost of living loan" for this year since I am independent from my parents? I will be enrolled in school, so if the college certifies it could that be a solution to pay for what I owe from the previous semesters?
How can you use private student loans to cover living expenses?0Caralynn932012-09-04 19:33:06
Very well . Next semester I will , to a school that is on the other side of the country . It's in a very small town and I need extra money to cover my expenses . Things like food , expenses, a car , etc. I have read online that you can use private student loans for those things, but I always looked at him, all sites say they use the money to cover the remaining cost of tuition or whatever and send the money to school rather than to me directly . So how do these loans are used to cover living expenses and how I would be able to get the money if you send them to school ?

I am about to move out of town to finish up college, but I will frequently be making a 400-mile one way trip to and from my home town. My car is 11 years old and has 140,000 miles. My question is, should I take out student loans in order to use part of the $20,000 for a new car, or should I just try to make my current car work in order to avoid the debt? Thanks.
