Very true. Community College is a great way to make college more affordable!
That would have save me a lot of money 20+ years ago
I agree Mrs. Pullen.
Those schools with the low tuition, do they make up for it in other misc. fees?
affordableeducation.org is where you can find affordable schools
NC Affordable Education
Go to cfnc.org to find online schools

ncresidency.org - Residency Determination Service (RDS) for students seeking NC Public College or Universities for students seeking in-state grants
-CFNC - College Foundation of NC is a great tool to use.
Great insights and information to help our students!
Four Main Resources: 1) Local (see high school websites, local organizations), 2) NC Scholarships (use cfnc.org), 3) Institutional Scholarships (See what the college/university or community college has), and 4) National Scholarships - scholarships.com (Have an App), College Board, FASTweb.com, and Use Google/Bing - Never pay for a college scholarship search
You can do an Excel Spreadsheet and put list of scholarships, website, and when the application is due.
Do your FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid - FAFSA.gov or Studentaid.gov/fafsa - App - MyStudentAid
-2nd Financial Form Supplemental - College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS Profile) CollegeBoard.org (Only 5 schools in NC ask for this profile)- They do have a waiver if you want to ask for one for the fee.
-Both open up in October
If your income has changed from COVID-19, you can do a Financial Change Form that explains how your 2019 income has changed. Check with your school's Financial Aid Office.
Find three different schools to see what you might get as each school has various funds to share with students so you have a better idea of what you can get.
