Try applying for FAFSA. If that doesn't work out as well, try for community colleges, sometimes considering your situation they might give you a full ride.

the first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if you're in the United States. This application will determine your eligibility for federal student loans, which do not have a minimum GPA requirement. Federal loans are a good option because they often come with lower interest rates and more flexible repayment options compared to private loans. It's also worth exploring scholarships and grants, which do not need to be repaid and can offer significant financial support without needing a loan.
