Guidance on student funding in the Bay Area?

from BCB2005 - Tuesday, May 08, 2007
accessed 621 times

I'm registered for classes for the 2007 Fall Semester at CCSF (going for Associate's degree, while working full time with decent salary) and am looking for information on financial aid/scholarships/grants.

I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Make sure you count as an a resident and don't end up paying out of state tuition. If you do I suggest you wait a year and then go to School, it cost me 5 Grand that first year I went to college because of out of state tuition fees.

Did you start by filling out a FAFSA?

Apparently there are also private sources of loan funding in addition to government programs. This is evidenced by the recent scandal involving student aid officers who steered students toward loan companies in which they owned stock. This would create the impression that there are plenty of organizations out there willing to lend you money.

If it's grants you are looking for, tough luck. Without any solid evidence of a high school education merit based money will be hard to come by. It wasn't until my senior year in college that I had enough of an academic track record to get scholarships. Thanks, mom and dad!

I'm filling out a FAFSA now but, it's difficult not knowing much information about my parents who are still in TF. I assume they have no assets, didn't finish school but not certain.

Also, that's the only program I'm aware of now.

It's frusterating to not only have to deal with learning basic scholastics now, learn the college system (since I'm not familiar with it), or have any family support or guidance. But, I'll figure it out. Thanks for your posting and let me know if anything else comes to mind.(reply to this comment

Try the financial aid people at your school. I was in the same quandary as you, but I just told them straight up why I was unable to get any answers, signatures, etc. from my parents. It took some extra paperwork but I was able to apply and get the loans. They do get this from time to time, and while it's a headache, they should be able to tell you how you deal with applying despite the gaps. (reply to this comment
