  • Net Earnings Calculator
  • Working long hours has been proven to have a negative effect on academic performance, yet today so many students are working long hours to pay for their education. Is this a wise financial strategy? The following two examples suggest it may be penny wise and pound foolish to work long hours, especially if you have not yet explored the option of student loans.
  • Example 1: Work more, borrow less, and finish later
  • Meet Ishaq.
  • Ishaq is an intern for a local business working 25 hours per week at $8.00 an hour. His heavy work schedule means less time to study, and as a result it takes him five years to graduate. The extra year of college (books plus tuition) costs him $5,000. Using this strategy, Ishaq comes out about $1,000 ahead on graduation day.
  • Example 2: Work less, borrow more, and finish sooner
  • Meet Rebecca. Rebecca takes out a $7,000 loan to help pay for her education. She uses the loan to reduce her work time to 15 hours per week. As a result, she graduates in four years and finds a job earning $28,500 per year. Even if she paid back her entire loan her first year out of college, Rebecca would still come out over $10,000 ahead!
