How to Get a Free Doctoral Degree

Hey Guys! It’s been awhile right?! I know but I am back and ready to give you all the information you need! If you missed it last week on my channel , I discussed how you can get a free doctorate degree. If you’ve been following my doctoral journey, then you know that I am currently working towards my doctoral degree in higher education. I recently finished all of my coursework and I am officially working on my dissertation proposal this semester. I chose to work at a university so that I could not only work with students but so that I could also receive a discounted education. In the beginning of my journey, I received a $1,600 stipend towards my courses, and I paid fees out of pocket. I also received several scholarships along the way that helped to cover most of my fees.

Navient Student Loan Settlement

  Alright guys another update on student loan forgiveness is upon us! This time it’s not from Mr. Byron but instead it’s from one of the largest student loan holders in America. Navient formerly known as Sallie Mae will have to fork over 1.7 billion dollars in student loan forgiveness due to a recent settlement that found them to have participated in predatory loan practices that negatively impacted a countless number of student loan borrowers.   While 1.7 billion will go towards student loan forgiveness, another 95 million will be distributed as $260 payments.    Figure 1: This is a thumbnail of my latest YouTube video on “Navient Student Loan Settlement” where I have my hand under my chin while looking at the camera.
