I have a couple of recommendations for you - all involve some hard work, but hard work in this case can pay off!
I would recommend educating yourself of possible scholarships, grants, etc. that you may be eligible for. This might involve asking a university advisor, a highschool advisor, searching your desired univeristy's websites, or even searching the internet. I would recommend looking for scholarships that may relate to your desired degree as these might be the most relevant.
I would recommend considering whether or not maintaining a part-time job while attending school would be possible. For example, if you took one or two classes less a year (extending the time it takes to complete your degree by a year or two) then perhaps you could maintain a part-time job that would allow you to save while attending school. This is something I did. In the summers I worked full-time and took a couple of summer classes to stay on track with my degree. In the fall and winter I took a full course load and worked evenings and weekends. This was challenging, but I was able to earn enough income to be pay for my schooing by the next year.
I am not sure if either of these two recommendations are helpful to you, but I found them to be helpful for me when I was going through university.
Best of luck!

Chelsea is spot on here! I would just add that you should also not max out your stipends. The smaller the stipend, the less loans you are borrowing. Many students will hit their loan limits by using stipends to pay for their housing or food. However, it costs way more in the long run then working part-time to come up with extra money. Work study programs are also beneficial, because you can earn grants by working on campus. Lastly, there are Vista programs or the Peace Corps. that will help pay your student loans, if you enlist for a period of time. Hope this helps!
