As more students balk at the debt loads they face after graduation, some colleges are offering an alternative: We'll pay your tuition if you offer us a percentage of your future salary. Norwich University said Tuesday that it will become the latest school to offer this type of contract, known as an income-share agreement. Norwich's program is starting small, mainly with students who do not have access to other types of loans or those who are taking longer than the traditional eight semesters to finish their degree. “Norwich University is committed to offering this new way to help pay for college in a way that aligns incentives and helps reduce financial barriers to degree completion,” said Lauren Wobby, the school's chief financial officer and treasurer.

A screenshot circulating on social media allegedly shows a conversation between two new roommates. The girls exchange niceties, each saying they accidentally called one another.

President Ram Nath Kovind today said girls often outscore boys in board examinations, colleges and universities, but their number is "distressingly low" in the IITs and this has to increase. In 2017, of the 1,60,000 candidates who appeared for the IIT joint entrance examination, only 30,000 were girls. Of the 10,878 students who had been admitted to under graduate classes of the IITs in the same year, only 995 were girls, he said while delivering the 64th convocation address of IIT Kharagpur. "This issue continues to puzzle me.... This cannot go on, we need to do something about these numbers," Kovind said. "When one considers board exams, girls do very well. They often outscore boys. In colleges
As the cost of college continues to increase, a growing number of University of South Carolina students may be able to save money by getting their textbooks for free. Free digital textbooks — which academics call Open Educational Resources, or OERs — can help reduce the $1,000 USC students and $1,346 Clemson University students pay every year for books and supplies. At least 24 professors in seven different colleges at USC offer OER textbooks for their students online, free of charge, said USC Librarian Aimee Freeman. Clemson offers a similar program, according to its website. Though USC lets professors make the final call on what to use as textbooks, the university — and especially student government

When Ohio State launched an investigation into allegations of abuse against former wrestling team physician Dr. Richard Strauss in April, the university encouraged more victims to come forward.
But it's not necessarily because parents want to shelter their kids from taking on loans. In many cases, it's because student loans won't cover the full cost of college. Federal student loan maximums haven't been updated for a decade and therefore have not kept pace with increasing college costs. Dependent students cannot have more than $31,000 in federal loans in total, and no more than $23,000 of this can be in subsidized loans. This maximum nearly doubles for nondependent undergraduate students ($57,500), and jumps to $138,500 for graduate and professional students ($224,000 for medical school students). Kantrowitz found that student loan growth has continued to rise among the latter two populations
