PORTLAND, Ore., July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College students can end the cycle of perpetual debt and position themselves for lifelong financial freedom with Direct Textbook's new guide, "Student Debt Destroyer: 3 Steps to a Debt-Free Degree." Download the guide for free at http://www.directtextbook.com/Student-Debt-Reduction-Guide.
"Student Debt Destroyer" uses common sense language to walk students (and parents) through a three-step process to eliminate college debt (even if they already have it), including how to:
- Set goals for college, career and lifestyle
- Maximize financial aid and income opportunities
- Find out how much college is really going to cost – and create a plan to pay for it
The guide comes with the Student Budget Tool, an interactive spreadsheet that automatically:
- Maps out all student expenses and income
- Identifies future cash flow shortages and helps students prepare for big bills
- Calculates students' total cost of college and tracks every payment
The Student Budget Tool is a living document students can use throughout their college careers to stay on the path to a debt-free degree. Download this tool at http://www.directtextbook.com/student-budget-tool.
At a time when the average four-year college student graduates $35,000 in debt, "Student Debt Destroyer" is a critical resource to helping them begin their professional lives in sound financial shape while avoiding the traps that lead to lifelong debt.
"This isn't your average 'how to save money during college' guide. It's the exact steps students need to take to eliminate college debt," said Morgan MacArthur, Direct Textbook Chief Technology Officer.
