Hi Desteny,


This is a good question to be thinking about when considering colleges. There are many factors to consider such as programs of interest, location and sometimes the price. However, do not let the price be the only factor in your search. There are many ways to finance college such as student loans, scholarships and work study programs. To find information on all of these options, visit the FAFSA website at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa. It's Federal Student Aid website and has many resources to look into all these options. Here is a scholarship website that I found on the FAFSA website that may help: https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/training/find-scholarships.aspx. You may also want to make an appointment with your guidance counselor at school. They will be able to help you look into all your options. Good luck on your search!

Meridyth recommends the following next steps:

Richard’s Answer

Absolutely. Even with grants and scholarships students are graduating with a crippling amount of student debt.

If you can keep your expenses down (live with parents, attend community college which can be free in some cities, complete your degree at an inexpensive public institution etc) debt doesn't have to be out of control. However the typical student does not do everything they can to decrease expenses then has to be stressed during their first years of your career.

Martin’s Answer

I don't think so. Your decision should be based on your motivation, the facilities at your college and what you would do with a degree
