I'm planning on starting graduate school in Texas in fall, 2015.
Right now we (my husband and I) are living in another state. Then plan is to move to Texas in Augest, 2015. Husband would physically be in Texas but working remotely for an employer outside of Texas.
Is it possible for me to qualify for in-state tuition rate?

My husband is completing his masters degree at the university where he also works. He gets tuition benefits, but any tuition benefit he receives over $5250 per year is taxable. The university treats those taxes as part of the tuition bill (they are about 37%) and we pay them out of pocket. According to our university, we should be able to get reimbursed for the taxes that we paid, given that the tuition counts as a job related expense. How do we do this? Bonus: how do we do this... on TurboTax? [more inside]

So, I pay my surreal tuition with loan money- $15,000 at a time. It dawned on me the other day that its dumb to just let that money slide by without cashing in on it somehow. I hatched a hairbrained scheme: Put the 15k on a credit card, cash in on rewards points / airline miles, then immediately pay it off with the loans.

I've been saving big into a college fund since my child was born 8 years ago, on the order of $900 per month. I recently checked the 529 plan that was receiving the funds and it is currently at $90k. There is still a decade before the child would enter college, and by most estimates that could mean a doubling and a bit more if market averages do ok. My investment guy says a kid in the year 2022 might need $300k for tuition at a prestigious college and that I should continue. I think I'm pretty well set for now and it could be around $200k by then with no added input. Should I continue putting money away in this account or should I divert that into my own retirement (which is doing well too, but could always be better)? Or contribute less? When is enough enough for college?

Is my college trying to rip me off? [more inside]
My company paid $1,000 for me to take a class, but in exchange I can't leave the company for 18 months, or I'll have to pay them back. I also have 50 hours of vacation saved up, and when I leave the company I will get those hours back as money. If I make $20 an hour, the 50 hours translate into $1,000 before taxes. My question is, will my company take their $1,000 back pre-tax, or post-tax?

My employer is paying my tuition, and told me that I could claim the amount as a deduction, because it's a taxable benefit. I did, and now I've received a letter from Revenue Canada asking me to submit a T2202 form and to tell them who had given me money for my tuition. (I filed online, which is why I hadn't submitted the T2202 before.) Was I wrong to claim this deduction? (You aren't my tax lawyer, but you know about these things.)

I work for a university with a generous tuition discount and after two years of research my conclusion is that the graduate programs here are generally for people who return to their same jobs (with the exception of med and law school).

I am a frugal person entering his senior year in college [age 21].
I have been following advice like the stuff in
and thread 99852
and living below my means. I sought advice in Financial books for college kids my age [for example, generation debt], but left feeling wanting more because they focus primarily on how to cut expenses [skipping the latte, etc].
So, I have some student loans already, but will need more for my senior year. I also have some money set aside, but I should I use this money to lower the loan amount that I'll take out or use this money for an investment (Roth IRA, index fund), and take out more for my student loans ?
