What is the best way to pay for college without a credit-worthy cosigner?

I am a sophomore in college, and I am just curious on the best way to pay for college. I am a theatre major, and I don't have a cosigner who has good enough credit. I am really looking for advice on scholarships/grants/etc.. Anything helps! #college #college-major #college-jobs #professional-development #work-life-balance #theatre #musical-theatre #film #student #loans #first-generation-college-students #Student-loans #Scholarships

Thank you comment icon Hi Adrian, You have a question that every student (who needs financial help) asks ..... where can I get funding for school? First, if you don't have a part-time job, get one immediately. Now some places to look for funding .... https://www.nerdwallet.com/blog/loans/scholarships-students-theater/ https://www.raise.me/scholarship/majors/theater_and_performance_studies - while this site has a good list, the deadlines have passed for next year .... BUT still look each one up for the future https://www.schooltheatre.org/programs/ags/scholarships - Like the one above, deadlines have passed, but look at the links for next year Much luck and success in your future career, Stephanie Stephanie Hamilton

Hi Adrian! First off let me say congrats on following your heart and pursuing music.


Most states have grants that will pay for credits. Check with the financial aid office to see what your state offers.


Some schools will offer a work program where you can wok off some of your credits. Again, check with you local financial aide rep.


Lastly, good ole fashion hard work. It sounds difficult and it is. However, it is so rewarding to know that you worked hard for what you wanted. I used a combination of the three :)


if its worth having, it is yours. Don’t give up and follow your heart!

Congratulations on being in your sophomore year in school-your definitely on your way to fulfilling your dreams! When I was in college, I was able to get state grants to help pay for tuition. I recommend reaching out to your financial aid office and your theatre department as well as online resources for college funding for theayre/acting majors. There are also may be work study programs that can assist you with tuition. Good luck on your studies and all the best in your career.

Hello, Adrian!


The best way you can pay for college is through scholarships/grants.

Another way you may consider paying for college includes enlisting in the army.

Once you are eligible to leave the army, the army will pay your college tuition.

Of course if you decide to enlist in the army, you will need to file an educational leave with your university.

Please meet with a Financial Aid Counselor at your university to discuss options for paying your college tuition.

Good luck with your personal, educational, and professional endeavors!


Best regards,
