Try to find a way to go to college by acquiring the least amount of debt possible. If you are going to go into debt to get a degree make sure the degree you get will pay well. Try going to community college for the first 2 years then transfer to a 4 year college to finish your degree. You can often do that for free and you will get the same education and you wont need to borrow so much money to finish school. Don't borrow 200K to get a degree that will pay you 40K a year out of school. The long term mental stress you will acquire trying to pay that off will far outweigh the joy of gaining the education. Ask questions about how well the industry you are getting into pays! - https://studentloanhero.com/featured/psychological-effects-of-debt-survey-results/

I always recommend: scholarship.com and fastweb.com and nerdwallet.com, and there is studentloans.gov The first 3 are search engines for scholarships and the last one is Direct Loans. Now, there are some alternative lending options such as private loans, but then you would be going through banks like Sallie Mae, and your personal bank may have options of borrowing. I hope this helps begin your journey. Good Luck.

For college financial aid, the first you should do is to fill out the FAFSA application at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/ .

FAFSA will notify school(s) of your choice about what type of financial aid (loans, grants...) you qualify for. After that your school financial advisor will be able guide additional national and local resources

Kazim recommends the following next steps:

  • Fill out the FAFSA application at, https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/
In addition to FAFSA, you can also meet with guidance counselor at the school you plan to attend. They can show you additional opportunities for scholarships and grants that are private and may be only for their institution. Usually you can call or ask to meet in person. Since you are from Nebraska, you should also review http://www.nebraska.gov/education/financial-aid/. This site has information for Nebraska state specific aid and scholarship programs. Hope this helps! Laura LaFrance Translate

Hi Sidney,

In addition to going to the FAFSA website, and speaking to your counselor, I would suggest that you are sure to find out exactly how much money you actually need. I say this, because you do not want to take out more money than you need. Knowing what you need financially for school will help you stay away from high student loan debt.
