WANT TO KNOW OUR BEST KEPT SECRET......
FREE MONEY FOR SCHOOL REALLY IS AN OPTION.
Tuition fees and living costs vary greatly from school to school. Organization, research and preparation can help you find financial aid from many sources: the government, grants, scholarships, and the universities themselves. While considering finances ask yourself:
- How to apply for financial aid using the FAFSA.
- Do I know how the college system works ?
- Can I afford to pay for any or all of my college experience?
- What grants, loans, scholarships, and work-study am I eligible for?
- How do I apply for these forms of student aid?
- When do I fill out the FAFSA?
- When is the TAFSA needed?
