Many opportunities are available to part-time students at most colleges. I would research your options at your specific school with the following suggestions.
Carolyn recommends the following next steps:
- Talk to a student financial aid advisor at your school - they are the best ones to know of scholarships or grant opportunities for part-time students.
- Consider a part-time job on or off campus. Most colleges offer a "work-study" job which essentially is a student job tied to your financial aid package. However, many student jobs offer a traditional hire position. This is something I did as a student. It was just a normal part-time job not tied to financial aid. When looking for campus jobs make sure to ask if it is a "work-study" position or not.
- Talk to your academic advisor about tutoring opportunties. Many colleges offer free tutoring services for students (doesn't matter if you are part-time or not).
