The ABCs of Banking with BCP offers these steps:  

1.  Define your career goals and the goals of obtaining a master's degree. This will help you decide which classes are the most important, based on your plans for the degree.

2.  Identify alternative options. If you have a specific school in mind, consider the benefits of this particular school and the classes it offers. Also consider the reputation of the teachers or the value of a degree from this school. Note which programs at the school offer scholarships; it maybe worthwhile to take a path of study slightly different than your original intent if it will benefit you financially up front or in the long run.

3.  Evaluate your own finances. Consider whether you have the money to pay for the degree, or if you need to finance the education. Also keep in mind the expenses involved, such as payment for books, specialized tests, food and housing. This can help you come up with a realistic action plan.

4.  Learn about the different financing options. You can apply for financing from a bank, but be sure to know about the commissions, rates and payment terms before signing an agreement. Choose a loan option that best suits your needs.
