You certainly could, and plenty of customers do, but we don't usually recommend it.
ThriveCash gives cash to students, but it isn't a "student loan" per se, which is strictly categorized and often comes subsidized by the government. That subsidy sometimes makes them available for as low as 3-5% APR. (But be careful with them! Unlike all other loans, even a bankruptcy won't clear you of student loan debt!) ThriveCash gives cash always at a 13% APR (besides 12% in MA).
Also, students can often find scholarships and other grants (cheaper than a 0% APR, you don't even have to pay them back!) for tuition. We think it's best you look for those first.
Where ThriveCash makes the most sense is for any other expense that may arise; say: summer housing, buying a car, flying home for thanksgiving, paying off credit card debt (which often hovers at a 25% APR, and gets more expensive each month you keep a balance).
All of this said, in a pinch, ThriveCash will work (whereas, say, a credit card won't) and can be the best way to pay for tuition.
Circumstances happen when there are no other options for tuition available, and ThriveCash is most likely a much better idea than, say, dropping out of class. In this case, we would recommend ThriveCash!
