    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Loans and Financial Aid

It is no secret that education is expensive. The majority of students graduate with some amount of loan debt. However, the College of St. Scholastica offers a surplus of scholarship opportunities and grants to assist students with the cost of college. Financial Aid is also a part of student services provided OneStop. The individuals in this department are fantastic at answering questions and providing resources to all of your financial questions.

From my experience, it is very important to educate yourself about the process of loans. It can be a very confusing process and is important to gather all the resources you will need. Other topics to discuss when taking out loans and paying for school is what you need. Although financial aid offers you a large sum of money, you don’t need to take it all. I recommend that you do your due diligence and make a spending spreadsheet to decide the amount of money you actually need to pay for school, housing, food, transportation, etc. It is also wise to know the difference between the types of loans offered and the interest rates that are attached to them. In addition, talking with a financial advisor can assist in how repayment plans work and what may be the best path for you when the time comes.

In summary, be sure to utilize the resources the college offers in order to be educated on the process to ensure you are making wise financial decisions.
