What students & Parents have to say

“Thank you so much for taking your time to meet with my daughter and I. We appreciate your wisdom and guidance as we venture into this new chapter of college preparation.

This really opened my eyes to understand that I need to pay attention and start looking into what I wanna do and what type of field I want to go into. It also helped me realize that I need to prepare more for college and it’s really made my mind a lot more alert with what I really want to do. I’m glad I did it. It was a great experience and I recommend it to everyone…it prepares you for the expenses so to you it’s like a head start to what you should be doing.”

Before going into the boot camp I was very overwhelmed in my path to college funding but the camp has opened my eyes and motivated me as well as equipped me with the correct information to go about my journey.”

The friendliness of my mentor really made me feel like I was an actual person instead of someone that could easily be passed off to another mentor. I feel better knowing the company values me as a person, even when it’s not in regards to what I signed up for.

I have had nothing but a wonderful and helpful experience with this company. I always felt as though I was in the best hands. My questions were always answered very thoroughly and a good portion of the time, my mentor was so detailed and forthcoming with information originally that I didn’t really need to ask any questions. She was of the utmost help and I feel more confident moving forward having learned the things from this company to help me apply myself better to both my school and future employment opportunities.

With the consistency I experienced, I feel as though I have set myself on a pace to continue applying for and possibly winning a multitude of scholarships. I truly want to thank The Student Navigator for bringing me to this point and I look forward to speaking with them again in the future.“

“My daughter is in her third year of college and has funded the last two years debt-free.”

The Student Navigator bootcamp has been an instrumental tool for helping me structure my path toward debt-free graduation as a prospective grad student in terms of refining my purpose, school selection, scholarships by category, fellowships and more.

Highly recommended that anyone in industry, college, high school and even middle school to take this course as a preliminary for preparing for college. It will provide you with the solid foundation you need to have to make more informed decisions about college selection, timing, and building good habits on the path to debt-free graduation. It’ll be time well-spent on the front-end to save you from a lot of needless debt later on.”

…beyond helpful, rather life changing! I am so grateful for the support offered and recommend anyone striving to have a debt-free educational experience to inquire and utilize the guidance available…You are bound to benefit!!!”

Formerly, the Boot Camp and membership within The Student Navigator Academy were separate programs. However, they both included hands-on guidance for students.

Due to this overlap of features available within both programs, offering these two programs together would allow us to reduce the cost—providing you with the opportunity to participate in both programs for a fraction of the price.

Frequently asked questions

The Funding College Debt-Free Boot Camp is a 10-week online program designed to teach you our proven roadmap towards funding your education debt-free.

Taught by Elease Dillard (debt-free college graduate, award-nominated entrepreneur, and author of Funding College Debt-Free), you will learn step-by-step strategies and insight towards positioning yourself for freedom after graduation.

This boot camp is open to all students over the age of 13. Whether you are a middle/high school student, a working professional returning to school, or a college student, you will learn strategies that will lead you towards funding your future/remaining education debt-free. (College students: this course can also be applied towards preparing you for your advanced degree!)

The Boot Camp is designed to be completed in 10 weeks with weekly lessons that build on one another. With our online self-paced format, you can complete it even sooner—allowing you to participate in the boot camp from anywhere and fit it within your busy schedule.

You will not go through this alone. This is a hybrid program, meaning you will not only have the ability to self-pace yourself throughput the lessons, but also be matched with a mentor and have the opportunity to ask questions at any time. You will also develop a community with other students within the Boot Camp as you all embark on this journey together.

Yes, absolutely! Elease’s book, Funding College Debt-Free, was written to be a guide. In the boot camp we will dig deeper and cover these topics more in depth than what is in her book. You will also be given action steps each week to complete in order to receive credit for the lesson, adding an extra layer of accountability. There are also advanced tools exclusive to you as a participant within the boot camp to help you even more on this journey. Get ready!
