The digital revolution has been nothing short of a plethora of opportunities for all those wishing to make some extra cash to manage the day to day expenses including college fee. Now you can earn passive income, in addition to that never increasing monthly pocket money of yours from the comfort of your home and pay for tuition. We all love being self-sufficient, don’t we?

Passive income is one that you can earn without putting in too much of an effort into it, plus you won’t be required to present an actual degree to make money like this. It’s more like spending a few hours in front of the camera, recording & putting it out on YouTube for the world to see. The higher the number of views on your video, the higher will be your ‘passive income’, which keeps coming in, as long as your video is up there for the public to see, like, appreciate & share! Now, use this money and pay for college!

if you are a student having financial trouble with your tuition fee, a passive income idea is all you need.


Given below is a list of passive income ideas that you could use to make that extra cash for college tuition, without putting too much pressure on your folks! Sounds like a plan.

Brilliant Passive Income Ideas

With the help of these passive income generation ideas, you can pay for college and do much more. Some of these mediums can earn you more than an otherwise steady 9 to 5 corporate job.

1.   YouTube

One of the most popular ideas being worshipped around the world is that of a YouTube channel. All it takes is signing up and you’re good to go!  This is the form of passive income that people of all ages, not just students, but everyone can do.  

Setting up a YouTube channel is fairly simple, & it will take no more than a few minutes to create a channel. Next step is to brainstorm content ideas, get inspiration from popular YouTubers and create original content to post on your channel. The more your views per video and subscribers, the higher will be your income figure and that’s how you can pay for college while filming content side by side.

2.   Blogging   

Another one of the passive income ideas for students looking for venues to earn cash for college tuition in Pakistan is to start a blog if you love writing.  Even if you’re not up for writing, you can blog about food, or lifestyle or things that you generally like in life. So, first and foremost, find your niche! What fascinates you? Is it fashion, lifestyle, food, or something else? Once you have figured this part out, you are good to go!

Start your blog on word press or any social media platform you like, Instagram perhaps. This isn’t all! To make good money, you must monetize your blog with ads and placements. Affiliate marketing pays good money that can be used to pay for college tuitions and more.

3.   Freelancing

Freelancing is the in-thing! It is one trend that you can be sure is not going anywhere anytime soon. It is increasingly becoming the preferred choice for students and people who can’t manage the robotic 9 to 5 office routine, but they need the money for college, grad school or rent.

Freelancing is best if you’re unemployed or school going but you aspire to make some extra cash. Fiver is a popular freelance online job portal that has provided people around the world opportunities in several disciplines. So, don’t take ‘freelance’ as writing oriented job only. It goes beyond, be it graphics designing, transcribing, website building & development & SEO, the opportunities are limitless, and so it the outcome.

4.   Tutoring

In this case, there is a pre-requisite that needs fulfilling. You need to have sufficient and up-to-date knowledge and skills to be able to transfer these as an online tutor.  If you have that, just create an online profile on Udemy or any similar website and start teaching.  

Choose a subject you can easily manage, upload its video lectures and help students that are looking to learn.  It’s like a virtual learning environment, but for you, it’ll be your virtual teaching space, one that pays great money! Use what you know the right way by becoming an online teacher, and make as much money as you’d like. You can also tutor on campus in your very own college and pay for tuition. This should also take care of all that extra time you have during lectures.

5.   Renting out your valuables

The easiest way to make extra money is by renting what all you own and things that can be rented. You can’t rent your broken TV, okay.  Find a possession of yours that’s sitting idle & put it up on rent. Let’s suppose you have a car that you don’t use as often. You can put it out on Uber or Careem and make money for college.

Or you could simply rent your study material, or maybe part of your dorm room or maybe even your console. Look around, you’ll find things that are lying around - things that can be utilized the right way.

So, if you are a student having financial trouble with your tuition fee, a passive income idea is all you need. Choose one from the list given here and start earning.
