I've been enrolled in college classes off and on for over a decade! I just can't get enough and would love to be one of those life-long students, but unfortunately I'm not rich enough to afford something of that magnitude. With the economy and job market the way that they are, college is definitely a necessity if you want to be competitive and achieve your life goals and dreams.
If you've never been to school and would like to, there are a great many things you should know about understanding financial aid. From filling out the FAFSA to knowing what types of aid are available to you, there are a great many things to know. If you have never even heard the word "FAFSA" then you really do need a helping hand!
There are many great websites out there to help you, but if you have a college in mind, I'd recommend getting in touch with them ASAP to find out what steps you need to take. Not all colleges are as prompt as we'd like, so you might have to start researching some of the financial aid information on your own so that you have some kind of idea about what you're getting into. But of course, all roads begin at filing your FAFSA.
