Here are the popular types of financial aid that may be available to qualified students to help pay for college:
Grants: Schools may award grants to qualified students in addition to those available through the government to those who qualify.
Scholarships: Your grades, heritage, religious affiliation, and other factors may qualify you for these.
Student loans: The advisor you speak to may know if the school you are matched with offers private loans and which federal loans you may be eligible to pursue.
Military options: If you are or were in the military, be sure to ask a representative at the school you plan to attend what your funding options may be. More info… Education Connection– 2016-2017 year
