A few dozen fans took Minaj up on the offer including Artavion Cook. He asked on Twitter if she could help pay his current outstanding balance of $1,300. She did and this week Cook graduated with a bachelor's in science (biology).

Cook shared a picture on Instagram, said, “I can't believe that I'm actually saying this out loud, but I am an official college GRADUATE! Bachelor of Science in Biology. Chemistry and Psychology minor.

This day is even more special because @NICKIMINAJ paid my tuition a few semesters ago, and today is her birthday.”

According to a news agency, Cook is looking forward to medical school and is getting ready to take the MCAT in the spring. He'd like to go to LSU Shreveport, Morehouse, Howard University, or Meharry Medical College.
