Yes, you can. The catch? You have to go to Germany to get it.
You might want to encourage your teens to learn German in case they can take their degree in Germany. Besides the cost of travel and living expenses, costs are zero.
If your teen saves money from summer jobs it could really help with living expenses abroad. They can cut their college costs even more that way.
I can think of more than a few students who would love to get a degree with almost no debt.
You need about a B average to qualify and must be evaluated for at least a year ahead of time. This could be a fantastic deal for many families struggling with saving enough for college.
Just think how great it would be to graduate from an accredited university with very low debt. You’d be able to do so much more without a huge debt–get married sooner, buy a house sooner, have a family sooner, start a business sooner.
I would definitely do this! If your student does not know German they can get books for the basics to study this summer. And try to add a German language class to their fall schedule. Call the school and get them to do it. If you can’t do that then invest in some language learning tapes/videos. It could be totally worth it. I hear good things about Rosetta Stone, but have no experience (nor affiliation) with them.
This is the best deal I’ve heard of in a long time. Here are important resources if you want to go to a university in Germany:
