1. Think whether tuition is necessary for you or not

You’re the one who has to study, and it should be your decision whether you need tuitions for the same or not. Before answering this question, check whether free resources available online are good enough for you to find an ideal solution or not. In many cases, tuitions can be avoided if free material available online and in libraries can be used for studies or not.

2. Understand the difficulty of the course

Even if you do not find valuable free resources online, you can still manage the course if the difficulty of the course is low. This means you’ll have to go through the entire syllabus and determine after asking seniors whether there is a need for you to opt for tuitions or it can be done all by yourself. If even a portion of it can be done by you on your own, you’ll save a considerable sum by opting for tuition for Limited subjects.

3. Check whether you’ll be in a position to repay the same or not

In most of the cases, people off for student loans and they assume that people graduate within the next four years and it will be easy for them to repay the loan. However, if you take more than four years to graduate, will be piling up on the interest amount and reaping the same will be slightly more difficult for you. In this case, your level of dedication is of utmost importance, and so you need to be careful with the same. Another important point is that any default in case of repayment of your student loan can lead to a poor credit score and that is not good for your future financial plans.

Lastly, understand the fact that your student loan will not go anywhere. You'll have to repay it in some way or the other.
