Now that you’ve been accepted the fun begins…how are you going to pay for college?
Start with some local research. There are quite a few organizations right within your hometown that could be looking to give you money for school. That’s right, GIVE YOU money! Many of them have scholarship programs in place and are awaiting applicants just like you.
Check your Kiwanis, Rotary, anchor businesses and larger organizations. Also some clubs and trade organizations give scholarships to those studying in a specific field. Just ask, you’d be surprised at what you may find.
Once you’ve applied for State and Federal loans, see what you’ll need to supplement. There are always options. It may help to co-sign a loan with a parent to get a better rate and help build your credit.
