  • Go to the financial aid office of the school near you and see what information they can give you.

  • You or your husband would have to speak to the financial aid department fro that college and they will go over everything with you. I have done this for college, it may take some time but in the end it all depends on how much your income is! Good luck

  • Another tip is never to let anyone charge you to file the paper's. If they do they are a fake. The real people will never charge.
