How can I get financial assistance?
I would like to enroll in a program, however I need some financial assistance with the cost of the program. Can you help?
This usually always starts with filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.gov but unfortunately not everyone qualifies for grants or loans from the federal government. You can look into scholarships and other grants that are offered by the state you live in, the school you plan on going to, religious and ethnic organizations, or by an organization in your field of study. There are various places that provide student aid and there are many different requirements that will determine if you are eligible. Sometimes it is on a needs base, it can depend on your special situation like a women interested in engineering, or it can depend on your academic achievements. It helps to do your homework and find all possible opportunities because as we all know college can be very expensive and a little help can mean the difference from getting an education and not getting an education.
