Grants... Financial Aid... etc...
    #2034574 - 10/23/03 01:33 AM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Could anyone provide me with any good information about how to get grants or financial aid for college?
I honestly dont know shit about where to get started.

I am interested in increasing my knowledge primarily in Music, Mycology, and Business.

Truth is, I didnt do very well in high school due to a lack of interest. I was a tad ahead of the bunch, maturity and intelligence wise. I dropped out when I turned 18 because I had to move out on my own. I needed to start work right away unfortunately.
I got my GED right away though. Hope that doesnt matter too much.  :smirk:

Yes, they'll be able to point you in the right direction and give you the proper Financial Aid forms you'll need to file. If this is your first degree, you may be qualified for  quite a few Grants..as in "free money"! :laugh: Good luck in your endevours! :thumbup:

The first thing you need to do is be poor.

After that it's easy. Just fill out a Fafsa application. Go to the official fafsa website: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ or go to the school and get a fafsa application to fill out.

I currently get a pell grant that completely pays for all of my tuition, plus a Stafford loan of about $7000 a year. You don't have to pay back grants, but you do loans.

Not really. Have you considered using money to pay for college?

what about scholarships? Have you checked into scholarship applications? Go to the college you are interested in. or go to www.wiredscholar.com and see if they have anything which you might be able to get. You never know, they may have scholarships for mycology, or whatever you are interested in. SOmetiems they give sccholarships out for really wacky stuff. like being 6 ft tall, having hairy palms... lol, okay not the last one, but stuff like that. THey have given all the grant money out for this year. Get your FAFSA application turned in right of way in february. That will put you ahead of everyone else. IF you have any special circumstances, get a special circumstances letter. You can write your ordeal and turn it in. They base it on how much money goes to what, if you have dependants and stuff like that or not. Also depends on the college you plan on going to, a lot of money is given out area specific. Can you take the sat? That might help you too...

Here are some tips,
-Don't go to a SUNY school
-Talk to all the nice ladies in the financial aid offices of the school you plan on going to. They get payed to get you money, and they are damn good at it.
-Student loans have rediculously low interest rates. You might want to take out a student loan instead of paying cash, just to help your credit.
-If you have a job that is related to your major, talk to your boss about trying to get help from the company you work for.
-Coummunity Colleges are your freind. Especially if you don't get much financial aid, or if you have a good enough diploma.
