As tuition prices rise, some students are looking for different ways to pay for college and one controversial dating website claims they are helping students do just that.
It's called seekingarrangement.com and it's an online meeting place for people looking for a "mutually beneficial relationship." The site offers a meeting place for people looking to make an arrangement which consists of a relationship in exchange for money.
The website claims students at the University of South Carolina are joining fast and looking for someone to pay for school. They say so far 52 students at USC have joined this year.
So, FOX Carolina asked students at USC Upstate what they thought of the website and this type of "tuition assistance."
"If it's helping people pay for school these days with crazy tuition costs ... whatever," said Janna McClure, a student at USC Upstate.
"I'm thinking as long as the girl or guy is of age and they are willing to be with that sugar daddy or sugar momma ... why not. They are going to school they are using the money for good. Why not," said Chris Clark, a student a USC Upstate.
The website says the average sugar mamma or daddy makes about $250,000 a year and some of those relationships result in marriage.
Some argue while you may pass those college exams you may not pass the character exam if you choose to sign up.
