Sometimes it can be overwhelming thinking about college just because the costs are so high. “How in the world am I ever going to afford this? Will I need to go into debt? Is there any way for me to pay for college?”
Financial aid differs from a scholarship in that a scholarship is typically merit-based. This means that you need to “earn” your scholarship by being excellent in your academics, extracurriculars, or some combination of the two.
If you aren’t eligible for any financial aid and can’t access any grants, you can still get help paying for college through student loans. When considering student loans, always prioritize federal loans over private ones.
