Set : Paying for My Education

Anyone can go to college if they really want to, and money should not stand in the way of pursuing your educational goals.

"Work with a family member to estimate your financial aid using FAFSA4caster and be sure to save for college!  

College may seem expensive, especially if you are considering going to a four-year university, but by planning ahead with the right resources, you only have to pay what you and your family can afford. There are many options to help you get ready to pay for college. Sit down with your parents to talk about what works best for you, and explore the state and federal options below.

State Aid

Federal Aid

Regardless of which college or university you are interested in attending, you should speak with the scholarship office. Many colleges offer scholarships and some tuition waivers without regard to immigration status. You should directly contact the organization that offers those specific scholarships and ask if you meet the criteria to apply.
