Pay Off College
Nancy Tengler of Arizona Bank & Trust shows ways you can pay off college debt by planning ahead, without any borrowing money, and also how to make your debt more manageable with some options.

Tips:

-Parents can start a 529 plan, which is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs.

-Go to an affordable community college first and then transfer to your school of choice.

-Students in high school can also take college credits in AP classes and may be able to earn enough credits to be an upperclassman.

-If you can, and are working while in college, pay as you go. Some loans allow you to start making payments while in school. 

If you already owe money, shop around for a good interest rate; consolidate higher interest loans for a lower interest rate. 

Public service jobs like teachers, firefighters, nurses and those who work in non-profits will sometimes qualify for loan forgiveness (you typically must make10 years or 120 months of on-time payments to qualify for loan forgiveness).
