Many of you want to attend college but do not have the resouces to pay for it and don't want to go into debt either. So, here are a few tips that can help minimze the cost of college:
Regardless of if there money saved for college or not, and if you have done the tips that were suggested above, research scholarships! Some scholarships are based on your major, a special skill, academics or financial need. You can also seek out private organizations such as ourselves for assistance with paying for college.
