Hi Gregory:

Are you referring to financing higher education after you earn your 4 year college degree and start working in your field of study? If so, there are companies that offer employee benefits that will cover tuition reimbursement.

Companies will offer anywhere from $8,000 to $10,000 or more per year for one to obtain a college degree whether it be an Associates, Bachelor or Master Degree. There will be stipulations like the degree has to be work related as well as a certain grade or grade point average (GPA) has to be obtained or maintained. It is best to check with the Human Resources Department for employee benefits like tuition reimbursement and requirements for qualification.

If the company that you work for does not offer this type of employee benefit, then one will have to research for educational loans, Pell Grants and/or scholarships.

Here are some websites for College Scholarships:

Also, it will be best to check with your Academic Advisor, School/Department of your major, the Campus Career Center and the Register's Office for additional information for college scholarships and grants.

Other financial resources can be family, friends and loved ones who can help assist you on financing your higher education.

Hope this helps and best wishes for your higher education!

I may need more information to really give you a complete answer... but let's just say you know you need a 4 year degree for example.

You could apply to go directly to a University that interests you. Or, you could go to a Community College for a couple years, and then apply.

There may be scholarships and grants you could apply for, or loans. FAFSA (free application for federal student aid) would be where to look.

The best thing you could do, is contact an admissions advisor at a school that interests you. They can walk you through applying for aid and the requirements for your degree.

Hi Gregory,

To get higher education, you need to decide in what field you are going to study in. Also, you should be able to cover the study expenses and other types of necessities for your career.
To finance your education, you can find a job (part-time if you don't have enough time while studying) or apply for some scholarships.
All the best and good luck in your future achievements

Hi—

I wonder if you have a counselor at your high school with whom to refine your questions and get an understanding of the community college and university system. I’m not understanding it as you’ve phrased it here.

In Los Angeles, there is a plethora of community colleges. If you live elsewhere, there will still be a CC near you. You can certainly find the one closest to you, fill out an application online —even if you aren’t planning to go right away—so you can go to an orientation and maybe meet with a college counselor to get an understanding of college/universities and planning.

All California Community Colleges have relationships with the high schools in their district. Find out who the representative is from your nearby community college. If you don’t want to apply in order to be able to see a college counselor, find out who the rep is and make sure you visit with them, either at the college or at your high school. All colleges have outreach staff.

Your question suggests to me that you could make better use of the resources around you, whether at your high school or at the closed community college. Speak directly with someone, like a counselor, rather than just use the internet. Best!
