Beating the College Debt Trap presents students with a better way to do college. The radically countercultural truth is that students don’t have to be totally dependent on Mom, Dad, or Uncle Sam to get the most out of college. Graduation on a solid financial foundation is possible. But it will require intentionality, creativity, hard work, and a willingness to delay gratification.

Chediak gets into the nitty-gritty of how to pay less for college, get meaningful work during college (while setting yourself up for success after college), pay off any loans quickly, spend less, save more, and stay out of debt for good. He also unpacks how to transition from college into career, honor God while achieving financial independence, and use your finances to make a positive, eternally-significant difference in the lives of others.

As a young engineering professor with an aptitude for finances and money management, Chediak has become particularly concerned with the financial health of students, especially in light of the ever increasing costs of college. In Beating the College Debt Trap he helps do something about this problem. He engages, in a friendly manner, the real world financial issues that young adults face, with clarity, practical help, lots of illustrations, and a little humor, while conveying a distinctly Christian perspective.

  • “A college education is one of life’s most important decisions, and one of its most costly. But many of us lose our critical faculties when it comes to paying for college. With the cost of higher education going up far faster than the rate of inflation for the past three decades, it’s easy for a student to take on crippling debt for no good reason…If you are a current or future college student, or a parent of such a student, you owe it to yourself, and to your wallet, to…[listen to] this book.”

    Jay Richards, New York Times bestselling author
