Not necessarily. You can apply for grants (still would require FAFSA completion) and scholarships. My university's financial aide office posts lists of scholarships throughout the year with information on how to apply. If you can manage working that will help as well. Make sure to consider options before starting school. My university's in state tuition is about $3500 a semester plus books up to $1000 a semester. Also, be realistic about living. Will you stick to the an extremely strict budget or need some giveway?

You don't have to go into debt there are a lot of scholarships up for grabs and a lot of reputable websites that will help you find the scholarships that fit for you. Keep in mind there are different tuition options if you are in state or out of state. A good rule of thumb is getting your base classes from a community college as it is a much less expensive option and will use up less of your scholarship/FASFA money.
