  • If you are hoping to go to a particular school go to their financial aid office and ask for information. They should have all sorts of info for you.

  • All the financial aid packets are available to apply for, so I told. I did this once, but it's got to be paid back with a very low interest. The sources for this aid are applied for by going to the college you want to attend and filling them out prior to the semester that you want to start. Upon finishing, with no gaps, you are entitled to the full possible grant based upon your need, and usually if you paid into taxes the year before. , or (2 yrs. before) not sure.

    Grants are free, loans are for 6 months free until you place a job, in then which it is 15 yrs. to pay it off.
