William’s Answer

What I recommend is to save up your money and have a consistent budget as to how much you want to spend on a monthly basis. If you have the time, try to find a part time job that can help in supporting the costs that you might incur. I got some financial support while going through undergraduate and graduate school, but I still took up a part time job at the cafeteria for my school to help alleviate the costs of attending my university.

Unfortunately college expenses keep increasing year-after-year. There are 4 things I'd recommend to be able to afford it.
1. Apply for scholarships. There are thousands of scholarships out there that you can search for and apply to. It takes work and time to do so, but I was able to get $20.000 in scholarships alone from doing this.
2. Apply for student loans. There are federal and private loans. Pay attention to interest rates and try to get the lowest rate you can!
3. Get a part-time job somewhere where you would make more than min wage. For example, I applied to be a pharmacy technician after taking a certificate course and made $12/hour. You can also see if there are jobs on campus that you could apply for.
4. Start saving now! I'm not sure where you are in your education, but save, save, save!! Birthday money, Christmas/holiday money....put that towards a college fund.
