How to Get a Free Education [Infographic]

Continuing your education shouldn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. And yet, the average cost for the 2011-2012 school year for in-state and full-time students was about $15,000. Not many students have that kind of money, so many of them end up taking out loans that will hang over their heads for many years to come. But there are some great resources for education that don’t cost a single penny that can help prepare you for the future and enrich your educational experience.

If you’re already enrolled in a university, auditing a class is a great way to experience new topics without having to pay for the credits. Whether you need a break from your current course load, want to try something new, or want to pursue an interest, auditing a class gives you the full experience for free and without a grade. For more on the go learning, many schools and universities offer open courseware and massive open online courses. Typically these are simply online versions of their classes that can be taken any time and at any pace.

Looking to further your education or try something new, but not ready to break the bank? Check out this infographic for more on where you can get free, quality classes and other educational sources. Let us know your thoughts in the comments and don’t forget to like and share!
