I am going to assume that this is for you, but the advice will work for anyone. First, state schools typically have special programs for folks that are non-traditional...meaning not straight out of high school. Contact the school that is closest to you and make an appointment with someone in the undergraduate admissions office. Depending on how you've been out of high school, you may not need to take the SAT or ACT. They will help get you started with the paper work and can direct you on applying for financial aid. If you qualify, the Pell grant doesn't have to be repaid and you should make that your first option. Continuing in another post...
