    $12,726.00 per year

    Grants 3,400
    Loans sub stafford loan 3,500
    unsub stafford loan 6,000

    and work is paying part of tuition so theres a 10% reduction

    so can someone do the math and figure out how much tuition will be after grad

    don't forget about the time value of money on your loans (and they do compound); also you have to know over which period you have (are allowed to) repay your debt. The interest rate of course. Further - how are you going to use your grants (towards repayment or use extra cash), and of course the 10% reduction - does it apply to the final amount you're going to owe, or is it a monthly discount. Good luck!

    I dont know where there 10% fits in..

    and I dont know if I still want to go through with it.

    the job i currently work at is crappy, $180 a week, and already owe $3,000 in bills,credit cards,medical.

    should I take the chance and do it. and hope I can pay it if off in the future?

    Do you want accounting costs factored in only or also economic costs? ;)

    damn, it's only about CAD$8000/yr for my 4-year degree program at my college (Canadian definition of college is different than the American definition).

    Op, you're in college, man!!! You need other people to do this simple equation....for you? Will other people be doing your finals....for you too? Will someone be getting your diploma.....for you, as well?

    This isn't a flame post at all. But OP, don't you see that part of learning is exactly that, learning. You have to be the one to learn. You have to be the ones to figure it out. You have to be the one to handle it on your own. You are the one that has to become self sufficient. If you get in the habit of always having others do it....for you... then a very welcoming career is fast food will be in your future.

    From wikipedia (yea I know it's awesome):

    "In the United States and Ireland, for example, the terms "college" and "university" may be regarded as loosely interchangeable, whereas in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and other Commonwealth countries, a "college" is usually an institution between school and university level (although constituent schools within universities are also known as "colleges")."

    Snarky! ;) Note the highlight, btw.

    We don't make an extra distinction for universities, which doesn't mean colleges are defined differently.

    The reason I asked it that I have a couple friends @ Lakehead, and last month they were "back at college".
