Have your employer pick up the costs

Most employers offer help with higher education costs. A 2016 survey from the Society for Human Resource Management shows 55% of employers offer undergraduate educational assistance and 52% help with the cost of graduate programs.

The maximum reimbursement averages about $4,400, the society says.

"With employee reimbursement, you have to study in your field," says Carol Stewart, author of "Looking for Scholarships." "If you're thinking about being a film producer, I would be surprised if an engineering firm paid for that." To find out if your company offers reimbursement, talk to your human resources director.
