33 Companies That Can Save You From College Debt

Alt text Originally, this article was going to be “Why I Love Starbucks.” As a former barista, the company was good to me. Not only did I get cheap health insurance, great hours, and a flexible schedule but I got something that really helped me. Tuition reimbursement. Starbucks gave me money to go to college. When you are taking CLEP tests, $1,000 goes a long way in saving you from college debt. Between my paycheck, tuition reimbursement, CLEP savings, and some money from my parents which was quickly paid off, I was able to graduate without student loans hanging over my head.

That’s huge. As a 20-something, I’ve managed to kickstart a debt-free lifestyle. And it feels great.

I could wax poetic on why Starbucks is the perfect job for a college student, especially a CollegePlus student, but I’ll save that for another post.

It’s time to get smart. Here are 33 companies that can save you from college debt. (Update: Now there are 51 companies in the list!) Some of them hand out big bucks to employees, while others just pay $500 towards school. Some offer scholarships to children of their employees. Each program varies. If you really want to be strategic about saving money, check them out. Best of luck!
