  • Talk with the college that you want to attend, they will know how much you need.

  • It depends. It would be enough for tuition for a 2 yr associates at a community college (that's what I'm doing right now) but I also get my books for free. So I'd say get more money :D

  • for one full year or one semester? And it depends on the school too, you know, how much it will cost based on how much it is per credit hour.

  • It really depends on the school you will be attending. A class at a community college may cost $250; a class at Northwestern probably costs ten times that amount.

    You can find additional scholarships at

    The financial aid office at the school you are attending is the best source for this information

  • The FAFSA is what gets you eligible for grants and loans. It is the Federal Application for Financial Assistance. It is not a scholarship, grant or anything else. It depends on what school you attend, how much the tuition is. Talk with the financial aid office at the school you want to attend and they may have other sources of money for school.
