“I want to go to college. But I’m not going to pay for it. I want to go to school and get my degree for free!” This was a statement many students made to me over the phone at all of the “for-profit” schools I’ve worked for. It was so common, regardless of the school’s accreditation, that I actually started to expect it, and consider it to be normal. But the truth is that it isn’t normal to expect to be able to get a college degree for free. It wasn’t then, and it isn’t now. And anyone who believes that they can do this is either delusional or has probably earned several scholarships by developing a very high grade point average. Unfortunately, most of the people who told me this had not developed a high grade point average in high school. In fact, many of them hadn’t even graduated from high school yet. Ironic, isn’t it?

(Financial Aid Continued) I believe that their unrealistic sense of entitlement had led them to this point, not only to assume that they deserved this “degree for free” but that they shouldn’t even have to have completed high school as a college requirement. Fortunately, the GED is available to substitute the high school diploma for those who had to drop out of high school against their will yet still have the drive and commitment to earn their college degree. Those who don’t have the drive usually don’t graduate from college with or without their GED anyway. But this false perception of academic financial assistance (or Financial Aid) still prevails in this mass consumption society of ours. (More)
