Saving up for college can be very hard, but never imposible. I would firstly recommend you to get a job and save as much money you can with that. Paying college also depends heavily on the college you will attend, their merit scholarships and things of that style. Regardless of merit scholarship and the price of college, I would advise you to also look at outside scholarships. Many websites and companies offer outside scholarships for students. Most of them require you applying to them (sometimes writing an essay for them), but you don’t have a limit of outside scholarships to apply at. Therefore you can apply as many as you can!

Best of Luck!
