Fraser Valley – The 2016 edition of The Debt Free Graduate has come out, in time for post secondary students to pay attention to. It is wordy and at time, overbearing with technical information, but all in all its $16.95 well spent. Students (and parents) should take the information in bites. If you try to swallow the entire book in one or two major sittings, you will be overwhelmed.
Media Release – Since the bestseller, The Debt-Free Graduate (#3 on the Toronto Star best seller list) was first published in 1996, university and college tuition fees have more than doubled in some provinces. Graduate debt levels continue to rise at an alarming rate. Students have staged protests against these staggering increases. Media is sitting up and taking notice – chronicling the lives of a generation that may be trapped for life by debts racked up in the pursuit of an education. More than ever, students need some financial advice on how to avoid the pitfalls of terminal indebtedness.
The Debt Free Graduate; Revised 2016 Edition, delivers that – and more! In the same witty, accessible and down-to-earth style that made the first edition so successful, Murray Baker gives updated information and timely advice reflecting the latest tax, RESP, RRSP and loan rules available:
- How to navigate the latest provincial and federal loan and bursary programs
- How the new RESP & RRSP rules affect you and how to benefit from them
- Where to find online information on scholarships, loans, housing and jobs
- New ways to save on travel, cell phones, computers, banking & other major expenses
- Making the most out of the ever-changing student health care plans
- Tackling the realities of debt repayment, loans, consolidation and interest relief
