  • How the hell do students afford housing and food? Read details?

    I’m a cc student. I will receive my associates this summer. I want to transfer to a school out of town. Thankfully my tuition and books would be covered.

    I’m a cc student. I will receive my associates this summer. I want to transfer to a school out of town. Thankfully my tuition and books would be covered. But housing and meal plans are more expensive than tuition and books themselves. Is it worth to take out loans for the two years I’ll be there? How much is off campus housing? Unless I can get a good job I’ll probably have to take out loans after my initial $3000 run out. Should I just go to my local university where I can graduate debt free? I want to move away desperately. I feel stifled at home.

I m not sure if that s a question in regards for my parents or myself. I used to live with my mother last year and she claimed me on her 2016 taxes, which I have the information for, but I just moved in with my grandparents last february due to her going to prison, and my grandparents are in a complete different state, so I don t have any of her personal information if I need that.

  • My parents will not help me pay for college, and I am getting next to no Financial Aid. What do I do?

    I am 17 and a senior in high school. My parents are divorced and I live with my mom who is a business owner- but she usually does not get much from her businesses, except in 2016 when she sold one because she was in debt.

    I am 17 and a senior in high school. My parents are divorced and I live with my mom who is a business owner- but she usually does not get much from her businesses, except in 2016 when she sold one because she was in debt. She used the money from said business to help pay off her debt, yet on her taxes this still counted as income, so in turn when I filled out FAFSA, nothing. She made too much money. I obviously have a job and already pay for almost everything myself- food, bills/car insurance (through parents), and school things. I live paycheck to paycheck. My parents don’t pay for much for me at all, let alone college. They informed me that they will not be able to help me. Their credit is not good enough for a loan for me. I’m trying to apply for scholarships but I feel that no scholarships that I will be granted will be enough. Is my situation enough to be an Independant? what else can I possibly do?

None of my parents are able to help me financially. I realize I legally have to put down all of their information, but will I be granted less money because I must list 4 incomes, versus if I only had to put down my mom's who is the only person i'm actually living with.

  • My friend took expensive bank loans for two years before getting FAFSA loans. Can they be refinanced by FAFSA loans?

    Best answer: No. Federal student loans are awarded for a specific year's educational costs, and the amount you can borrow is quite limited. The funds are sent to the school and applied to your charges there, such as tuition and fees. However, if the amount of federal student loans you are awarded for this year is more... show more
    Best answer: No. Federal student loans are awarded for a specific year's educational costs, and the amount you can borrow is quite limited. The funds are sent to the school and applied to your charges there, such as tuition and fees. However, if the amount of federal student loans you are awarded for this year is more than the cost of your school's charges, the difference will be refunded to you. You can then use those funds to pay off your previous loans.

    So, I applied for college yesterday and today I got an email saying I have been accepted. The tuition for the first year is 10,950, supplies are 900 and the books are 800. When I applied for school I applied for a loan at the same time as well. Now, I have never really gotten a loan before, or anything like that other then a credit card so while the loan is going to cover the tuition, i’m still going to have to pay for the supplies and books myself. I rent an apartment as well so I have utility bills, rent, groceries etc to pay on top of all this school stuff. I’ve heard of a student line of credit, but don’t know very much about it. So, What I’m looking for is mainly just recommendations on what would be the best way to pay for these school expenses

I have 78 units right now after I just finished my fall semester, but by next semester in spring I'll be taking 14 units, which will add up to 92 units in total, my question is... will I lose my financial aid on spring or after spring? and am I still be receiving aid for spring or not? I went to my financial aid school offices, according to them I wouldn't lose it until summer after spring but I'm so confused because they didn't sound too sure about that. So that's why I'm asking. And because I heard the limit was 90. Thanks for answering I'll be giving 10 points.
