7 Ways College Students Can Supliment Their Financies

How to earn extra cash as a College Student.

One thing that is common to most college students is the lack of money. Tuition cost are way up from years ago, and required books for the courses that a student must buy have gotten really ridiculous. To top that off gas prices continue to fluctuate and seem to always be going up. There may be plenty of opportunity for scholarships and some financial services. Student loans are available to most but at some point these have to be paid back. So if a student doesn't want to create a huge loan or run up some credit card that leaves earning some cash on the side while in college.

There are many ways that a college student can earn a little extra cash for everyday expresses. Here are 7 ways that many students use to earn money that require little or no out of pocket expenses.

  1. Off campus jobs. Off course an off campus job is one option if you can find one that want interfere with your studies. Waiters or waitresses in restaurants are popular. I personally delivered appliances and worked at a full service gas station.
  2. Become a tutor. Especially for upperclassmen and those highly skilled in math, English, internet technology and other areas, tutors are in demand to assist other students. You can freelance your service or see if your college has a tutoring center you can join.
  3. Got a camera. Take pictures and upload them to sites that sell stock photos. Places like Dreamstime , SnapVillage , Shutterstock , iStockphoto , Fotolia and BigStockPhoto are all .com's that will upload your pictures and when someone downloads your photo art you receive a commission.
  4. Buy and sell items on Ebay. List your unwanted items on ebay. Check with other students and offer them a percentage for listing their items.
  5. Become a freelance writer. If you have good writing skills offer your services to students and even online to write and produce articles, essays, and even blogs for others.
  6. Blogging. It is possible to earn some cash through different adds placed on blogging platforms that are placed on that page by other marketing services. Squidoo is a good example with adds posted from amazon, google, and other advertisers.
  7. Affiliate Marketing. One area often overlooked by college students is to start online marketing as an affiliate marketer. In most cases this requires little or no out of pocket money by promoting products offered through Clickbank, Commission Junction, Amazon, and Shareasale to name a few.

I know from past experience as a college student that not having a few extra dollars for life's little pleasures or necessities can be frustrating and somewhat of a distraction from studies. A college student may have some advantages over others as they are in a position in many cases to be exposed to the latest fads and fashions, new technology, and other new ideas of interest in today's world.

Most college students today have either a laptop computer or at least access to one and the time in between classes and studies to get online and do a little niche affiliate marketing. This can be very rewarding and can be done using simple techniques with little or no out of pocket expenses. If a student can develop a good marketing plan then the problem of "no cash in pocket" can be solved with just a little work and determination.
