Tips for Affording College

Wed Nov 4, 2020
How to afford college is a big question, but here are some tips from Destiny and Ineke on how to get answers:1. Fill out the FAFSA as soon as possible. It opens October 1 and you can start yours at https://FAFSA.ed.gov. If you identify as a Dreamer student in California, apply through the California Dream Act at https://DREAM.csac.ca.gov. 2. Start visiting the financial aid pages for every college you’re considering to see additional scholarships you may qualify for. 3. Also reach out to your high school college counselor for local scholarship opportunities. 4. Remember to continue applying for scholarships throughout your college journey, not just when you're a senior in high school!Find more help at https://www.callutheran.edu/financial-aid/get-started/.
