Lumerit Earns National Endorsement by Dave Ramsey Show

National Radio Syndicate Advocates for Debt-Free College Degrees

San Antonio, TX –  Lumerit Education announced it received a national endorsement from Dave Ramsey, America’s trusted source on money and debt-free living and host of syndicated radio program “The Dave Ramsey Show.” Lumerit has offered debt free college degree plans for more than ten years. As part of its Lumerit Scholar’s program, the company will offer students the college edition of Ramsey’s Foundations in Personal Finance class.

“Student debt is now approaching $1.5 trillion. The average 2016 graduate finished with $37,000 in loans”, said Rick Beyer, CEO of Lumerit. “Students are taking on loans without a complete understanding of their long-term obligation. It will take many students upwards of 20 years to pay off their debt. As a result, they will compromise many long-term opportunities. For students it is best to get a degree plan and not a loan.”

“Looking back, the best thing I ever did was to become a Lumerit Scholar and earn my degree without debt,” said John Wilson, Lumerit Scholar who graduated with a business degree. “The Lumerit Central Registrar’s Office was able to construct a course-by-course degree plan for me which considered both the fastest path to graduation and most cost-effective alternative. It allowed me a pay-as-you-go plan which I followed, and now I am a homeowner at age 25. The freedom from debt is indescribable.”
