HomePage_StateSearchWhen all is said and done, paying for college usually ends up costing way more than you thought it would in the beginning. While tuition costs are high enough, as a student you must also take into account paying for books, traveling expenses, a computer, and keeping a roof over your head. For non-traditional students hoping to return to school to jump-start their career, these costs can be overwhelming and even impossible without the help of federal or private lenders.

In this section, you can read articles to help you get the information you need to help you find the right financing for your college education. We cover everything from the basics, including how financial aid works as well as tips on how to win a college scholarship. For a list of hundreds of scholarships, check out our scholarship opportunities page. You will also learn about alternative ways to finance your college education, including loans, and how to save even more money through internships, externships, and work-study programs.
