These are used by people who need to get cash in a pinch, as well as people who want to borrow money but have less than perfect credit. As unsecured, short-term loans, both payday loans and cash advances on carry very high interest rates.

Do you want to work with others to make an impact and change the world? These are not conventional graduate courses involving linear delivery of prepared content. The goal is for the students to develop solutions to big problems in the world. The instructors do not sit back hiding the answers. They don’t have the answers. Really. The professors are facilitators, conveners, project leaders, and (occasionally) experts, but students ultimately run the show.

Classes address problems that are: Complex and multi-layered, requiring an interdisciplinary approach to generate viable solutions; Not easily solved with simple research and require students to develop a significant innovation; Clearly defined and sufficiently narrow that students have an opportunity to develop potential solutions in a single semester.
