  • You can look for scholarships here:

    Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university.

  • I agree....start with a community college (or junior college). It's what im doing. Apply for your FAFSA as well. Plus, there are alot of classes now that you can do online (which is what I'm doing) so you don't have to worry about a babysitter.

  • Start by talking to a counselor at a community college and then go from there. You can do online classes too.
