You should definitely apply for FAFSA and CSS to get financial support. If you go to school, then you can talk to your guidance counselor on how they can help you fill the forms out or help you find scholarships.

There are many initiatives that state schools and community colleges offer to help students that want to go to college, afford college. A great place to start is by looking at the websites of schools nearby and seeing what types of scholarships they provide. Next, there are a whole lot of scholarship opportunities available to those who dig for them. Also, the FAFSA is extremely important for any federal financial aid.

There are definitely many options ⚖️ for students in your position. First of all, SCHOLARSHIPS 💸 are huge. You can get some based on your financial status 🏠 or merit 🎓, so no matter how your grades look, there’s options for you. Additionally, apply for financial support 🤝 via FAFSA & CSS. I would not recommend taking any loans ⛔️ and highly recommend speaking to your counselor 🧑‍🏫 who will know more info that is relevant to you.

You may have to take out federal loans and/or private loans. I suggest you take out as many federal loans as they offer you because the interest on private loans can be insane. The federal loan offers will be on your financial aid package when you get accepted into a college. After you look through that, you may decide that you want to take out private loans as well.
