Hi Nasario: In addition to completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you could find free programs, scholarships and low cost programs.

Another way is to solicit help from your extended family members regarding paying for a book or two, supplies, sending you extra money from time to time, etc. You could also check with your church to see if they have a youth program where they support college students expenses. If you do any volunteer work check with the agency to see if they support college students. There are many ways to help pay for your college expenses. These are just a few ways to help you think about it a little more deeper. I know expenses tend to mound up quickly in college. So you want to get creative and think outside of the box for help. You'd be surprise where a "yes" could come from for help with expenses. I wish you the best on your journey!

Sheila recommends the following next steps:

  • Solicit help from extended family members such as paying for a book, supplies, parking. These items go a long way
  • Check with your church's youth department. It doesn't hurt to ask
  • Check at your college student center to see if they have any resources listed
  • Research free scholarships and low cost programs

Filling a FAFSA with the institution you are planning on attending is important to find what funding you may qualify for. I recommend speaking with the Financial Aid office of the institution if you need help filling it out and have questions about the requirements for receiving financial aid as it may vary by state.

Samuel recommends the following next steps:

  • File FAFSA by deadlines for school year you plan to attend
  • Speak with Financial Aid office for the institution you want to attend to receive guidance.
