    Table ronde sur la fabrication additive © N. Seling

    5e soirée des partenaires

    Sur le thème de la fabrication additive (3D)

    Jeudi 29 juin a eu lieu la cinquième Soirée des partenaires de l’école, organisée par le service des Relations industrielles. L’événement a rassemblé environ quatre-vingt personnes, industriels, représentants du secteur économique régional, universitaires et étudiants.

    Une table-ronde, animée par Fabien SOULIÉ, enseignant-chercheur, a abordé le thème de « La fabrication additive dans les applications industrielles, citoyennes, de la recherche et de la formation ».

    Stéphane ABED, président de la société Poly shape, Yann LEFEBVRE, président du FabLab « LabSud », André CHRYSOCHOOS, directeur du centre PRO3D et Christian JORGENSEN, professeur au CHU de Montpellier et directeur de l’unité INSERM “Cellules souches, plasticité cellulaire, médecine régénératrice et immunothérapies”, sont intervenus pour partager leurs expériences et échanger sur les applications de ces technologies.

    Les diverses interventions des invités ont permis de montrer le spectre très large des champs d’applications de ces nouvelles techniques de mise en œuvre de la matière, allant de l’industrie de pointe à la recherche médicale avancée, sans oublier les applications standardsaccessibles à tous ” précise Fabien Soulié.

    Les présentations ont aussi su faire ressortir toutes les étapes de la démarche de conception, de dimensionnement et d’optimisation, préalables à la phase d’impressionproprement dite ” ajoute André Chrysochoos, concluant que “la fabrication additive est apparue aux participants comme une solution complémentaire aux techniques classiques de fabrication, mais possédant ses propres limites “.

    Student Loans Mythbusting

    Student loans website

    Updated August 2017

    Student loans website Ignore newspaper headlines about students leaving university with Ј50,000 of debt. That’s a mostly meaningless figure. What counts is how much you’ll repay; for some that’s far more, for others it’s free.

    This guide is written to bust common myths about student loans, grants and finance, including the 20+ key facts every potential student, parent and grandparent should know.

    20+ student loans mythbusting tips, including.

    Student loans website

    Recently graduated and worried about the interest?

    Read Martin’s “Student loan interest’s rising to 6.1% – should you panic or pay it off?” guide

    Before we start, I’d just like to say:

    For 23 years we educated our youth into debt when they go to university, but never about debt.

    It was for this reason, and while no fan of them, when massive changes were announced to student finance for those starting in 2012 or beyond – including the trebling of tuition fees – I agreed to head up a student finance taskforce. The idea was to work with the National Union of Students, universities and colleges to ensure we busted the myths and misunderstandings that resulted from so much political spittle-flying.

    Don’t confuse the cost and the price tag

    Student loans websiteWith headlines shouting about Ј50,000 student debt and that getting bigger as living loans increase in 2017, it’s safe to say many students and parents are scared by this huge sum – and worry about how they’ll ever repay it.

    But in essence that fear is misplaced. That’s because the price tag of university is mostly irrelevant. What matters in practical terms is how much you have to repay – and that’s a completely separate number from the total amount of tuition fees, maintenance loan and interest, because it all depends on what you would pay.

    What you repay solely depends on what you earn after university. In effect this is, financially at least, a ‘no win, no fee’ education. Those who earn a lot after graduating or leaving university will repay a lot. Those who don’t gain too much financially from going to university will repay little or nothing.

    This guide applies to the system started in England Wales in 2012

    If you started before that you’re on a different system; please see the Should I repay my student loan? guide for full info on past loan systems.

    You don’t need the cash to pay for university

    It ISN’T a case of ‘pay up or you can’t go’. Once your application has been processed, tuition fees are automatically paid by the Student Loans Company. And there is a loan for living costs too.

    Of course you don’t have to take these loans, you could pay the tuition fees directly. Yet as you’ll see (in point 15) that’s often a bad idea.

    However, some students won’t get the same support as the majority.

    If you already have a higher education qualification

    If you already have a higher education qualification you’re unlikely to be able to borrow the money. Included within undergraduate courses are Higher National Diploma/Certificate courses and certain teacher training courses such as the PGCE.

    If you’re wanting to study health care or medicine?

    The Chancellor announced an overhaul to the existing grants system for student nurses in his Autumn Statement in November 2015.

    From academic year 2017/18, student nurses will no longer receive grants and will instead apply for student loans, which the Government says means they’ll get more to live on than they’d get through the grants system.

    The amount students will get depends on whether they live inside or outside London and whether they are living at home.

    Taking into account a long-course allowance, the maximum a student would get living outside London and not at home is Ј10,092.

    Nurses who have already started their studies will continue to get grants and nursing students who’d already applied for grants for the 2016/17 academic year would also have received these.

    When nurses leave their studies and start to repay their loans, it will be under the normal loan repayment system described in this guide, meaning they will repay 9% of everything they earn above Ј21,000. The starting salary for a nurse is Ј21,600, so in the first year they will pay about Ј54 towards their student loan.

    How the system currently works

    Medical and health care students get support from the NHS bursary scheme, where they’ll also get an additional NHS grant and maintenance loan from Student Finance England. The amounts and rules are different depending on the course.

    Undergraduate medical or dental students on five/six-year courses will have all tuition fees paid in their fifth and final years. Those on four-year courses must contribute Ј3,465 to their first-year fees, then receive Ј3,465 in years two, three and four as a bursary. Both will then be able to apply for a student loan for the remainder of their fees (eg, undergrad med student can apply for a loan for one to four years).

    Graduates on the four-year accelerated medicine programme will have to fund the Ј3,465 tuition fee for all the years themselves. Eligible students can apply for a loan up to Ј5,535 to cover the remaining tuition fees.

    You must reapply every year for the NHS bursary, and applications have to be received within six months of the first day of the academic year.

    Fees for suitable non-medical courses, eg, physiotherapy, nursing and midwifery, are usually paid directly by the NHS so eligible students will not be required to pay tuition fees.

    They will also be eligible for a Ј1,000 grant, means-tested bursary up to Ј4,395 (Ј5,460 in London, Ј3,351 if living at home, less for courses under 30 weeks each academic year) and a non-means-tested maintenance loan of up to Ј2,324 (Ј3,263 London, Ј1,744 home; all are reduced in final year of study).

    If you’re a Muslim student

    Muslim students in England are set to be able to get alternative student finance acceptable under Sharia, although there is no news on when this will be made available. We’ll update the guide as soon as we know more.

    Other RN schools in Orange County CA?

    I realize it’s not in OC, but Cal State LB is pretty close to you, and you could get your bachelor’s in two years in the trimester program. I’m in my sixth semester there and it has been challenging but great. If you really don’t like where you are, look into transferring. There isn’t a waiting list, and I know Saddleback just switched their admissions and now they don’t have a waiting list either. I think Goldenwest does, though, so that might not be your best bet. Good luck!

    I live in Aliso Viejo and I’m on a program at San Bernardino University. It is a long drive, but I don’t mind. I’m a partnership Riverside Community Hospital- CSUSB student and have all of my clinicals at RCH, where I would I will be working after graduating. This is an accelerated program and I will have my BSN in 2 years. I think that having BSN is better. I’ve heard that Long Beach is very impacted and it is hard to get in, so I did’t even try to apply. I’ve applied to San Marcos University, CSUSB and Saddleback. I got into CSUSM, CSUSB and didn’t get into Saddleback, but I didn’t care, since I was already going to CSUSB. It is much easier to get on a program at CSUSB because they accept 80 students 2 x a year. There is one transfer student in my class, she transferred from Loma Linda.

    i really did not want to deal w/a bachelors right now. i already have a ba from years ago, so i just wanted the rn. i heard that saddleback was crazy hard like cypress. is the time commitment outside of class insane? this is my typical tues: class from 800-1130, drive 40 min to hosp to p/u assign, get pat. and fill out paper work for about 1 1/2-2 hrs, drive home 45-1hr, eat dinner, start prep work for oh 3-5 hrs. go to bed hopefullly sleep 6 hrs (most stu sleep w/only 3 or 4, but i refuse, i’m too old ), wed. get up 430, work 630-1600, go home hr drive home, eat, home work 3-5 hrs. hellish, i’m telling you. is this normal for you all? thanks for the info!

    that sounds about normal. i’m attending csulb’s nursing program, but i live in mission viejo (south oc) and have taken classes at saddleback.

    have u tried looking into santa ana college?

    you mentioned you have a BA. some colleges have a 15 month program to get a second bachelor’s in nursing. it’s just as tedious as getting your associate’s degree in nursing too, but at least you’re getting a higher degree for the same work.

    I go to school only 2 times a week T-Th. Last quarter I had clinicals from 6:45 to 12:00 and a lecture from 14:00 to 15:50. Only 7 units, where at Saddleback there are 15 units/semester. Next quarter I will have 11 units and the same days of the week. The clinicals will be the same, but the lecture will be from 13:00 to 17:50. I also have BS degree and I’m not very young. If you will apply to CSULB, they will only consider you for the accelerated 1 y 4 mo program, which is very hard, my friend is on this program.

    saddleback doesn’t have 15 units of nursing a semester. that’s only if you include general education, which many students who enter have already fulfilled. saddleback has an average of 7 units of core nursing a semester.

    Online Colleges For Military Students

    You’re serving in the military, and you want to continue your education at an online college.

    Problem: As a military student, you’re facing an unpredictable schedule, at best.

    GetEducated.com surveyed military advisors at online colleges to put together these helpful tips that showcase what to look for in an online college before you enroll.

    Tip 1: Look for online colleges for military students that will be flexible if you are called away

    If you are in the military, you may be deployed without warning. Your online college needs to be sensitive to this issue. Find out in advance what the school’s policy is regarding unpredictable absences and homework delays.

    For instance, at Columbia College (based in Missouri), a military student who didn’t have advance warning and is deployed while taking online college classes can request an incomplete or an excused withdrawal.

    In some cases military students may even be given more time to finish their assignments, says Gary Massey, Associate Dean for Adult Higher Education at Columbia Online.

    “We will deal with things that are out of their control,” says Massey.

    Similarly, military students at Colorado Technical University can expect flexibility from instructors, says Arthur Macias, Senior National Admissions Advisor of the school’s military division.

    If a military student is called away for a few days and can’t get to a computer, “our instructors will let them turn it in later if that’s what they need to do,” says Macias.

    “When dealing with military personnel, you have to realize you’re also dealing with the unexpected,” says Randi Reich Cosentino, senior vice president of academic administration at Strayer University. <>

    Strayer “freezes” courses if military students are deployed or transferred. The students can then resume the course when they are able to, without having to start the course over again.

    “This gives them peace of mind,” Cosentino says, “so personnel don’t hesitate in signing up for courses.”

    Tip 2: Make sure your online course doesn’t require “real time” participation

    Flexible scheduling is key for a military student enrolled in online college classes. Be wary of classes with live lectures and “synchronous” or real-time discussions, especially if you are in another time zone, halfway around the world.

    Some schools offer live lectures—but also provide downloadable versions for students who can’t make it. This is the case with Colorado Technical.

    “We archive lectures for all students,” says Macias.

    Tip 3: Look for an online military college that offers easy, 24/7 access to information

    Depending on where you are stationed, you might not have access to a computer. You also might not be able to phone the United States, especially if a school’s customer service lines operate only on a 9 to 5, U.S. schedule.

    These days many online education schools offer the ability to use cellphones to download class material, check assignments, message instructors, and receive grades.

    For example, says Macias, Colorado Technical offers “CTU Mobile” —a cellphone interface that allows easy access to information about a student’s academic work.

    Many online colleges staff military bases with representatives so military students can easily access a real live human being if they encounter concerns about program access.

    Others, such as Colorado Technical, offer round-the-clock phone support with financial aid and admissions advisors, as well as web chat functionality.

    Tip 4: See if your college offers downloadable e-books or CD-ROMs, which will save you from having to tote heavy books from unit to unit

    Macias says military students ask: ‘’We already have 50 pounds of life supplies in the field; if I’m moving from one unit to another, what do I do?'”

    CTU ships books through military post five weeks before classes start, says Macias. Undergraduate and associate degree students are provided with e-books, but graduate students are issued copies digitally and in hardcover (when they are able to receive them).

    Strayer offers a majority of its books as e-books, says Reich, with chapters available online. Military Students primarily use laptops to access these texts. “We do make some lectures downloadable to the iPhone, but it’s not a large contingent,” says Cosentino.

    Excelsior College, on the other hand, offers CD-ROM-based courses. “They were designed for the military and they work very well for servicemembers who were deployed and don’t have Internet connections,” says Sue Dewan, executive director of the Center for Military Education at Excelsior.

    Some students prefer “real” books, especially older students. American Military University mails textbooks to deployed online students, says Jim Sweizer, vice president of military education.

    “For many years, we did provide textbooks to students and still do for the majority of classes. You get a mix of students—the older ones tend to like the textbooks and the younger ones like the books in electronic fashion.”

    Sweizer worries that students who depend on downloading books electronically might be without texts if they can’t get Internet access. On the other hand, he says, ff the school were to provide pre-loaded handheld devices, it couldn’t put as much information on as it could provide on a website.

    “The amount of coursework that you can insert into these handheld devices is not as tech-savvy as what you can do if it’s in an electronic classroom over the Internet,” he says. Also, course materials on handhelds aren’t interactive, while web courses can offer this functionality—letting online military students feel like they are part of a classroom experience, even when they are in a war zone.

    Keep these tips and check out our other articles below to help you chose the best online college as a military student.

    Majors

    Albright’s ADP curriculum features an accelerated seminar format with intense use of the Internet as well as additional computer technology. Interaction between students is emphasized and much of this collaboration involves applied group activities.

    While traditional classes meet 40-44 hours per semester, Albright’s ADP courses meet for four hours per evening for five to seven weeks. Remaining class time is fulfilled by a combination of Internet usage and independent study.

    Through a special partnership with Reading Area Community College, Delaware County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Northampton Community College, and Warren County Community College, most associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) from these colleges transfer fully to Albright ADP (and acceptance is automatic if all Albright transfer admissions criteria are met.) Albright College offers a $2,500-3,200 Partner Scholarship based on GPA to graduates of these colleges. (Any applicant with an Associates Degree is eligible for a $2,500 scholarship.)

    ADP offers bachelor’s degrees in:

    Accounting: The accelerated program in accounting prepares students for careers in public and private accounting and in obtaining professional certifications. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

    Business Administration: The accelerated program in business administration prepares students for a wide variety of careers in finance, banking, marketing and management. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

    Crime & Justice: The accelerated program in crime and justice involves an analysis of criminal deviance and its roots, plus an in-depth understanding of our criminal justice system’s successes and failures. Unlike other criminal justice programs, students are not trained specifically for police work. Rather, students are educated in the academic study of crime, criminology and justice in preparation for a variety of positions within the criminal justice system.

    Digital Communications: Albright College offers one of the only evening accelerated-hybrid programs in Digital Communications in the area. Focus on strategic communication across media platforms including publications, videos, and websites in the Albright College Digital Communications program. (This program is currently offered exclusively at our Reading location.)

    Computer and Information Systems: The accelerated program in information systems is based on common structures and degree programs in the United States and Canada. It also meets the recommendation of the Association for Computing Machinery, which sets a variety of standards in technology fields, as well as graduate study programs.

    Organizational Behavior / Applied Psychology: The accelerated program in organizational behavior / applied psychology prepares students for a wide variety of careers in social services, management, human resources, training and development. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate program.

    The best and worst student accommodation

    Students outside their halls of residence at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Photograph: David Sillitoe

    It’s the tallest and largest student accommodation block ever built. It towers 33 floors over London’s Spitalfields market, just minutes from trendy Hoxton and Brick Lane, and promises breathtaking floor-to-ceiling views “you won’t get tired of waking up to”. Its 1,204 student rooms offer everything a bright young thing might want – broadband in every room, chillout spaces boasting giant flat-screen televisions, and an ultra-modern gym and spa.

    But what might really take your breath away is the rent. Private developer Nido is charging £14,280 a head to share a flat with three others, or £16,830 if you’d rather have a studio with kitchenette and live by yourself. That’s more than £50,000 just for college accommodation over three years. Unfortunately, they don’t accept Amex.

    Guardian Money this week researched accommodation costs in university-owned halls, private student blocks, and shared houses and flats in student areas. Bradford was the runaway winner; the university has the lowest-cost own-accommodation at £53.50 a week (its Laisteridge Lane Halls are Britain’s cheapest); it has the cheapest private halls (starting at £49/week) and its “survival” costs (food and going out) were also the lowest.

    The full figures are here. We have relied on the Virgin Guide to British Universities for estimates on food and going out; website Accommodation for Students for the cost of private halls and off-campus shared houses; and university websites for first-year hall of residence fees. The lowest-cost self-catering accommodation (the first figure in the table) starts at £53.50 a week in Bradford, rising to £99 at Durham. Catered accommodation (second figure in the table) rises to as high as £216.44 in Edinburgh.

    Overall, the research indicates that the typical student will struggle to survive on less than £7,000 in their first year, taking into account accommodation, food and going out. However, this drops in the second year to below £6,000 as students move out of university or private halls into cheaper rentals.

    Our figures are for single-study bedrooms. We did find one location beating Bradford if a student is willing to share a room in his/her first year, and, surprisingly, it was in the otherwise expensive city of Edinburgh. The university has rooms starting at just £2,200 for the academic year. But this is for a twin/bunk room, and it’s not quite Nido Spitalfields. The desirable features highlighted by the university include “carpet” and “bedside lamp”.

    Nido Spitalfields isn’t even the most expensive being promoted to students. The somewhat dubious distinction of Britain’s priciest – and probably fanciest – goes to Roland House in South Kensington, London, “five minutes from Imperial College”, according to its listing on website accommodationforstudents.com. The seventh-floor rooms with a view, go for £390 per week – equal to £20,280 a year. Its pampered residents enjoy a gym and spa, a weekly clean, linen and towel supply, internet and Sky TV.

    But few British students are likely to see the inside of either Nido Spitalfields or Roland House. At Nido’s other development, near London’s King’s Cross station (cheapest single room: £12,495 a year) around 90% of the occupants are from outside Britain.

    Some students – or more likely their parents – might have been hoping that accommodation costs would be falling, given the latest data on sagging house prices. But in the student economy, prices always seem to rise.

    Accommodation for Students reckons that rents, based on 59,000 properties across 84 cities, are running 4.3% higher than in 2009 and have risen by 25% since 2004. Its figures mostly cover the type of shared properties taken by second-year students, or those unable to obtain a place in halls in the first year. It said the average is now £65.30 per week, with bills on top.

    The table shows the value of downshifting into rented rooms in the second year although, unlike in halls, students have to factor-in other bills such as heating and lighting, plus the fact the landlords usually require them to sign a 12-month contract compared with the 40 weeks common in the private halls.

    The average weekly student rent in Reading is £69.11, compared to private halls which start from £129.44.

    The average rate for shared properties in Birmingham is £57.30, where private halls typically cost between £90 and £110.

    As might be expected, central London and neighbouring areas are the most expensive places to study. The south-east contains eight out of the 10 most expensive student cities.

    Those attending Kingston University face average rents of more than £100 per week in their second year. That is almost matched by the cost of the most basic halls provided by the university.

    Kingston’s cheapest en suite rooms cost £92.75 a week for a 40-week tenancy, which means at least you are not paying for the summer holidays.

    However, these are not big rooms. “Please note the lower fee reflects the small size of the rooms. They are unsuitable if you have a large drawing board or are over 6ft tall,” warns Kingston’s website. Across town, its “luxury” rooms in private halls start at £195 a week.

    Simon Thompson, co-founder and director of Accommodation for Students, says: “Students who are going through the clearing process are unlikely to be able to find university accommodation for their first year, and so it is really helpful to know precisely how much they will have to pay for private rented accommodation.”

    His website, which is free for to use, puts students in touch with landlords with homes to rent, and other students with rooms to fill.

    Meanwhile, a report published last week suggests the problem of student debt is getting worse. The Push Student Debt Survey, which questioned 2,000 students, found that those starting this autumn can expect to owe £24,700, compared with students who began courses last year who are likely to graduate with debts of £23,200.

    Undergraduates now owe, on average, £5,600 for each year of study after any help they are given by parents is stripped away. The report found that average debt for students at university in England is £5,293 per year, while in Wales it is £6,411. In Scotland, where fees are still paid centrally, the average debt per year of study is just £2,637.

    Digital Running Records on Raz-Plus

    With our Online Running Record tool, Raz-Plus or Raz-Kids members can:

    • Assign and listen to recordings of Benchmark Passages and Books.
    • Score recordings using an online running record tool.

    BENCHMARK PASSAGES & RUNNING RECORDS

    Find students’ instructional levels by assessing their reading skills with developmentally appropriate texts while recording reading behavior. Benchmark Passages are short text selections that are one part of a three-part process to help place students at their instructional levels for leveled reading sessions and to assess their readiness to progress to the next level.

    Why Benchmark Passages

    Benchmark Passages assess comprehension and reward students’ progress from level to level. They are one part of a three-part process that provides a more complete assessment of reading behavior and comprehension than any of the parts independently.

    • Each level has 2 fiction and 2 nonfiction passages.
    • Each level has at least 1 fiction-nonfiction passage pair on the same topic.
    • Each passage uses a level-appropriate percentage of words from leveled books at that reading level.
      • aa-E = 100%
      • F-J = 95% + 5% new words
      • K-Z = 90% + 10% new words
    • The text of the entire passage is used in the Running Record.
    • Most are one page long, but upper level passages can be two pages.
    • ALL are available on Raz-Plus .

    How to Use Benchmark Passages

    1. Give a student a Benchmark Passage he or she has never seen before to read aloud. If you prefer to use familiar text, use the fiction-nonfiction topic pair at each level. Use one passage from the pair to support a student’s understanding of the topic before assessing with the other passage.
    2. Record the student’s reading behavior using the passage’s Running Record form.
    3. If a student scores 90 percent, assess the student’s comprehension using a Quick Check from Level A-Z and Retelling Rubrics .
    4. If a student scores from 90%-94% percent on the running record and answers comprehension questions at 80%-100%, he or she is at an instructional level. (For more details, see About Running Records ).
    5. Use Benchmark WOWzers to reward students’ progress from level to level.

    2016 Discover Student Credit Card Review: Important Advice #discover #student #card #review,discover

    Discover Student Credit Card Review 2016

    by CreditCardForum Staff

    Getting your first credit card as a college student may not be easy. In fact, because students often have a limited credit history, the cards aimed at them aren t usually the best when it comes to rewards. However the Discover student cards are different. Here are three reasons why

    Reason #1: Way better rewards

    There are two Discover cards designed for students: Discover it for Students and Discover it chrome for students. Here s what the Discover it® for Students is giving for rewards

    • 5 percent cash back in categories. You get new categories every quarter that you can sign up for.
    • 1 percent on everything else. You will always get at least 1 percent on everything else you buy.

    As for the Discover it® chrome for Students, it s offering:

    • A permanent 2 percent cash back on up to $1,000 in spending each quarter on combined gas station and restaurant purchases
    • 1 percent cash back on all other purchases

    Reason #2: More benefits than most student cards

    Both Discover student cards offer the following

    • Purchase Protection. In my opinion this is one of the most useful credit card benefits. With it, the eligible purchases made with your Discover card are protected for the first 90 days against theft or accidental damage, up to $500 in coverage per purchase.
    • Extended Product Warranty. On eligible purchases, Discover gives you an additional year of coverage on your existing warranty of 36 months or less. So let s say you buy something, like a brand new iPad from the Apple store, that comes only with a one-year manufacturer s warranty. In addition to that, you will have one year extra through Discover for no additional cost.
    • Return Protection. Ever try to return something but the store won t take it back because more than 30 days have gone by since the purchase? The nice thing about this benefit is that you can return any qualifying purchase to Discover within 90 days for up to a $500 refund, even if the store won t take it back. Keep in mind though that just like any return, you have to give back the item in like-new condition.
    • $0 Fraud Liability Guarantee. Don t worry about getting scammed, because if your card or account number is ever used fraudulently, you won t be responsible for those charges.

    Reason #3: The fees are fair

    • No annual fee. Yep that s right, you get all the above benefits for no additional cost.
    • No over-limit fee. You won t get charged a fee if you go over your credit limit.
    • No foreign transaction fees. Many credit cards will charge you up to 3 percent extra when making purchases outside the U.S. That goes for purchases made when you are physically outside the U.S. but sometimes also for purchases you make online from overseas merchants. With Discover, however, you can use your card anywhere in the world without paying those fees (assuming the merchant accepts Discover).
    • No pay-by-phone fee. Need to make a payment by phone using your checking account? Some cards will charge you $5 or $10 bucks to do this, but not Discover.
    • Free FICO score on your monthly statement. This card gives you your real FICO score from TransUnion on your monthly statements. Considering the fact that you probably got a credit card to build your credit, being able to monitor your progress for free is a huge perk. That score would otherwise cost you $20 every time you check it.
    • No late fee on your first late payment. Normally, late payments can cost you up to $35 a pop. But with this card, at least you get one freebie. That s definitely helpful during college finals when you may forget.
    • No interest rate increases for paying late. A lot of cards will jack up your APR if you ever pay late. This one won t do that.

    Compare the student credit cards for yourself

    Worried about your card not being accepted? Discover is accepted at more than 94 percent of the top 2,000 internet retailers and more than 8 million businesses. You can use them almost everywhere that takes Visa and MasterCard.

    Best Sign-up Offers (updated January 2016)

    You won t find these promotions everywhere, but I m listing both here so you can choose the one that s best for your needs.

    Discover it® for Students:
    Offer #1: Get a 0 percent intro APR for 6 months on purchases. After that, it s a standard variable purchase APR of 13.24 percent to 22.24 percent.

    Discover it® chrome for Students:

    Oh yeah, and here s some important advice you not know about credit cards. In fact, a lot of old people don’t even know these things:

    #1 – Build credit even without a balance
    One of the reasons people start getting into debt is because they think it’s actually good for their credit score to have a balance. But this is completely wrong and doing so can actually harm your credit!

    There is a huge difference between carrying a balance (allowing a balance to carry on past the due date and paying interest) and reporting a balance (having a balance when your billing cycle closes). When your billing cycle closes each month, the amount due is what’s reported to the credit bureaus. If you then pay that reported balance in full, you won t have to pay interest, and you ll get all the credit-building benefits.

    So if you are regularly using your Discover card, you have the ability to build your credit… carrying a balance into the next billing cycle (and paying interest on it) offers absolutely no benefit to your credit score.

    #2 – Carrying a large balance may hurt your credit
    Even though you should let a balance report each month, keep it small.

    The percentage of your credit limit you use – known as credit utilization – is factored into your FICO credit score. Having high utilization is actually bad. Banks like people that have a lot of credit but don’t use it! With the FICO formula, using above 30 percent of your credit limit may negatively affect your credit core.

    The simple solution? Once you get your student credit card, always stay below 30 percent of your credit limit. Make multiple payments each month to keep it below that mark.

    #3 – A better score means cheaper student loans
    Let’s be honest here… college tuition is out of control! If you’re going to be taking out more loans to finish your degree, of course you want to get the best interest rate possible. Well, whether you get a good rate or bad rate depends on your credit score and history.

    This is why it’s so important to not screw up with your new Discover student credit card, or any credit account for that matter. Use your cards responsibly – pay your bills on time and in full, and keep your credit utilization in check (as discussed above). Doing this will help build up your credit and you will be thankful for that when it comes time to get a loan.

    The best and worst student accommodation

    Students outside their halls of residence at Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham Photograph: David Sillitoe

    It’s the tallest and largest student accommodation block ever built. It towers 33 floors over London’s Spitalfields market, just minutes from trendy Hoxton and Brick Lane, and promises breathtaking floor-to-ceiling views “you won’t get tired of waking up to”. Its 1,204 student rooms offer everything a bright young thing might want – broadband in every room, chillout spaces boasting giant flat-screen televisions, and an ultra-modern gym and spa.

    But what might really take your breath away is the rent. Private developer Nido is charging £14,280 a head to share a flat with three others, or £16,830 if you’d rather have a studio with kitchenette and live by yourself. That’s more than £50,000 just for college accommodation over three years. Unfortunately, they don’t accept Amex.

    Guardian Money this week researched accommodation costs in university-owned halls, private student blocks, and shared houses and flats in student areas. Bradford was the runaway winner; the university has the lowest-cost own-accommodation at £53.50 a week (its Laisteridge Lane Halls are Britain’s cheapest); it has the cheapest private halls (starting at £49/week) and its “survival” costs (food and going out) were also the lowest.

    The full figures are here. We have relied on the Virgin Guide to British Universities for estimates on food and going out; website Accommodation for Students for the cost of private halls and off-campus shared houses; and university websites for first-year hall of residence fees. The lowest-cost self-catering accommodation (the first figure in the table) starts at £53.50 a week in Bradford, rising to £99 at Durham. Catered accommodation (second figure in the table) rises to as high as £216.44 in Edinburgh.

    Overall, the research indicates that the typical student will struggle to survive on less than £7,000 in their first year, taking into account accommodation, food and going out. However, this drops in the second year to below £6,000 as students move out of university or private halls into cheaper rentals.

    Our figures are for single-study bedrooms. We did find one location beating Bradford if a student is willing to share a room in his/her first year, and, surprisingly, it was in the otherwise expensive city of Edinburgh. The university has rooms starting at just £2,200 for the academic year. But this is for a twin/bunk room, and it’s not quite Nido Spitalfields.

    Nido Spitalfields isn’t even the most expensive being promoted to students. The somewhat dubious distinction of Britain’s priciest – and probably fanciest – goes to Roland House in South Kensington, London, “five minutes from Imperial College”, according to its listing on website accommodationforstudents.com. The seventh-floor rooms with a view, go for £390 per week – equal to £20,280 a year. Its pampered residents enjoy a gym and spa, a weekly clean, linen and towel supply, internet and Sky TV.

    But few British students are likely to see the inside of either Nido Spitalfields or Roland House. At Nido’s other development, near London’s King’s Cross station (cheapest single room: £12,495 a year) around 90% of the occupants are from outside Britain.

    Some students – or more likely their parents – might have been hoping that accommodation costs would be falling, given the latest data on sagging house prices. But in the student economy, prices always seem to rise.

    Accommodation for Students reckons that rents, based on 59,000 properties across 84 cities, are running 4.3% higher than in 2009 and have risen by 25% since 2004. Its figures mostly cover the type of shared properties taken by second-year students, or those unable to obtain a place in halls in the first year.

    The average weekly student rent in Reading is £69.11, compared to private halls which start from £129.44.

    The average rate for shared properties in Birmingham is £57.30, where private halls typically cost between £90 and £110.

    As might be expected, central London and neighbouring areas are the most expensive places to study. The south-east contains eight out of the 10 most expensive student cities.

    Those attending Kingston University face average rents of more than £100 per week in their second year. That is almost matched by the cost of the most basic halls provided by the university.

    Kingston’s cheapest en suite rooms cost £92.75 a week for a 40-week tenancy, which means at least you are not paying for the summer holidays.

    However, these are not big rooms. “Please note the lower fee reflects the small size of the rooms. They are unsuitable if you have a large drawing board or are over 6ft tall,” warns Kingston’s website. Across town, its “luxury” rooms in private halls start at £195 a week.

    His website, which is free for to use, puts students in touch with landlords with homes to rent, and other students with rooms to fill.

    Meanwhile, a report published last week suggests the problem of student debt is getting worse. The Push Student Debt Survey, which questioned 2,000 students, found that those starting this autumn can expect to owe £24,700, compared with students who began courses last year who are likely to graduate with debts of £23,200.

    Undergraduates now owe, on average, £5,600 for each year of study after any help they are given by parents is stripped away. The report found that average debt for students at university in England is £5,293 per year, while in Wales it is £6,411. In Scotland, where fees are still paid centrally, the average debt per year of study is just £2,637.

    With all the changes occurring in the higher education world, colleges are being challenged to offer students creative options in order to attract them to their institutions. Many colleges are meeting this new challenge through increased marketing as well as offering students courses in a variety of new formats. Today, thousands of colleges are offering online courses as a way to expand their reach and attract students without geographic boundaries. So, for the student who would like to take online courses to meet some of their degree requirements, how does a student decide?

    There are some broad classifications that might help a student narrow their choices for finding the best online courses to meet their specific needs:

    • Affordable, Semester-Based
    • Fixed Rates
    • Ongoing Enrollment
    • Self-Paced, Independent Study
    • Access to Syllabus Before Enrolling
    • Flexibility with Course Prerequisites
    • Non-Proctored Exams
    • Science Courses with Labs
    • Textbooks Included
    • Non-Regionally Accredited Schools
    • Online Christian Ministry Degrees
    • Low-Priced Online MBA Courses and Degrees

    There are thousands of colleges offering online courses in addition to the ones listed in the categories below. The schools included, however, have been chosen because they are both reasonably priced and regionally-accredited unless otherwise noted. The list is far from exhaustive, though, and not meant to purposefully exclude any colleges. They are primarily mentioned to give students an understanding of the types of course formats that are available today. A student may find it helpful to do their own research to find the courses that best fit their budget, schedule and degree plan.

    The following colleges offer affordable online, semester-based courses in eight or sixteen-week formats. Courses from this list of schools can be found starting from lower than $100 per credit hour.

    Another emerging trend in higher education is the offering of creative tuition plans. Fixed rate tuition is a unique option being offered by a few colleges. Western Governors University in Utah charges a flat $3,000 per six-month term and the student can complete as many courses as they want in that period. Courses begin the first of each month and a student can enroll in as many sessions as they like.

    Many colleges are now offering students the ability to begin taking online courses throughout the year instead of following traditional fall and spring semester formats. Some schools begin classes every month. Courses generally follow eight or sixteen-week schedules, but students can begin any month that fits them best. The following colleges in this category offer tuition beginning at less than $175 per credit.

    Self-Paced, Independent Study

    The number of courses being offered in this category by today’s colleges and universities is growing very quickly. Students are demanding flexibility and schools are responding. Students can work through the course material at their own pace, which can prove to be very helpful both for those wanting to move quickly and for those needing to go more slowly.

    The course material directs students through each subject and often requires written assignments and tests. Instructors are available for questions and grading, but the course is directed by the material and not the teacher. Students should assume these courses are just as challenging as traditional courses, but can offer greater flexibility to students with demanding schedules.

    Many colleges such as Louisiana State University, Portland State University, and the University of Oklahoma have no admission requirements, and students simply register and pay for courses. Colleges usually allow students between six and twelve months to finish, but may give extensions of time for an additional fee.

    Most colleges offering self-paced online courses also offer other online courses in traditional semester-based formats. However, one benefit of self-paced courses is the ability for students to begin any day of the year. These courses might also be referred to as “self-paced,” “quick entry,” “correspondence” and “open entry-open exit”. The colleges below offer flexible, independent, self-paced courses beginning at less than $100 per credit.

    Access to Syllabus Before Enrolling

    Many students may benefit from having the opportunity to review a course syllabus before enrolling. This allows students to research the course content, work requirements, grading system, and time commitment needed to earn a satisfactory grade. The following colleges place their syllabi online for students to review prior to enrolling. Colleges in this category can be found with tuition starting under $100 per credit hour.

    Flexibility with Course Prerequisites

    Colleges normally require students to take basic courses before proceeding to more advanced courses. As a result, students must follow college policies to prove that course prerequisites have been met before they will be allowed to enroll in an advanced class. College prerequisite policies can vary a great deal, but Louisiana State University’s policy is especially easy to follow for their online students.

    LSU’s website is very informative and it clearly explains course content, lesson assignments, grading formats, and more. They offer more than 175 online, self-paced courses for less than $100 per credit hour, including many upper level courses.

    Many colleges require students who take online courses to take their tests under the supervision of an approved proctor. Local college testing centers and libraries are common locations for students to arrange for a proctor. Some colleges, however, allow their students to take some of their exams without a proctor. Each course has different testing guidelines. Some instructors feel comfortable assessing a student’s knowledge through writing assignments, projects or group discussions, and allow their exams to be taken online. The following colleges have offered some courses with non- proctored tests. The colleges from this category begin tuition at less than $100 per credit hour.

    Science Courses with Labs

    One of the challenges of earning the majority of a degree online is the common requirement for a science course with a lab. Many colleges offer online science courses, but only a handful will include the lab. The following colleges include an online lab with some of their science courses. Colleges in this category offer courses for as little as $100 per credit hour.

    Some colleges are including the cost of textbooks and learning materials in their tuition price. They sell themselves on the idea that their costs are all-inclusive, with no hidden fees. Two affordable online colleges offer students this option. Colleges in this category currently offer all-inclusive tuition beginning around $250 per credit hour.

    Non-Regionally Accredited Schools

    Some students may want to consider taking courses from Penn Foster College, even though this school does not have regional accreditation. Students who plan on graduating from a college that accepts ACE credit may be able to take advantage of Penn Foster’s more than 180 online courses that have been recommended by ACE. Colleges that do not normally accept credits, from non-regionally-accredited institutions, may still allow these courses to be transferred because they have been approved by ACE.

    Penn Foster offers manageable, self-paced courses that students are allowed to take twelve months to complete. Students can begin these courses anytime and textbooks and study materials are included in the tuition. They also offer multiple options for acceptable exam proctors. These courses will not work for every student, but may be considered by students choosing colleges with generous transfer policies. Penn Foster currently offers courses for less than $100 per credit hour.

    Online Christian Ministry Degrees

    Some online private Christian colleges offer affordable tuition for students wanting to earn a ministry degree. Some of these colleges offer undergraduate degrees while others focus on the post-graduate level. Colleges in this category currently begin tuition at less than $200 per credit hour.

    Low-Priced Online MBA Courses and Degrees

    College tuition for a masters degree is usually higher than tuition for undergraduates. This often places these degrees out of the financial reach of many students. Students looking for affordable graduate-level courses may want to research the following colleges, with tuition starting at less than $250 per credit hour.
