I've been trying to learn how to earn a little extra cash on the side as I'm going to college out of state this upcoming school year. While I did get a full ride, it did not pay for housing and food which is close to $5,000 a year (it's about $2,000 once you have the Pell Grant and work study). I'm extremely tech news free netflix
 thankful to have my expenses be that low, but since my family doesn't make much money, I'm trying to earn extra money for expenses.

I'm currently 18, so I sadly can't take part in UberEats or anything similar to it (tried Postmates as well but for some reason it wouldn't accept my address). I am in highschool, a leader of a club, work part time, plus a few other things, so I usually am only free from 6:30pm til whenever I decide to go to bed. That time is also supposed to be when I study and do homework, so I can't do anything with a set schedule (plus I already have a job technically. I work at a kennel so I get less hours, but they are really nice for a student who struggles with keeping up with a crazy schedule sometimes). I've looked into some survey websites, possibly trying to transcript, Foap (photo app), and a few other things (I've tried to be safe, do research, and use a throw away email for all of it). Is there any websites or tasks you recommend? What about what places to avoid? I'm not looking to become a millionaire or anything, just anything I can do to relieve the stress of college loans. Thank you!

First and foremost, congratulations for being a future-focused student. Many students out there only live the moment and do not even think about those college loans. I can advise you to sign up for a freelancer account on Upwork, freelancer.com, Fiverr, Guru or People Per Hour. There are so many jobs online, you can apply depending on your schedule and expertise. If you are good at movies, you can create stuff and post on Youtube or even start a blog. They are good options for a busy student

Making money as a college student is very easy, jus don't get too involved that you forget your books. I would personally recommend that you go for freelancing, since there are several options to choose from, depending on your passion and abilities. I suggest writing, but if you don't feel like it, you can test SEO and more technical stuff like programming

As a student, there are several ways you can get that extra pocket money and even pay your loans. I would recommend you start a blog and develop it well, then you can start getting paying Ads. All you'll need is maintanance. You can source for content and get someone to manage it for you once the workload becomes overwhelming
