Consider college
Jump to section

Have you considered earning a college degree? It can be a perfect stepping stone to continued growth. It will help you secure a job, advance your career and make more money.

What are my degree options?

What types of colleges are there?

There are many schools available for higher education! Each school serves a different purpose. They include:

  • Small/large
  • Private/public
  • Vocational/trade/academic-focused
  • Online/in person

How will I pay for college?

The thought of paying for a college education can be overwhelming. But there are a number of assistance options available. Prospective students may receive a combination of the following in a financial aid package offered by the school once they've been accepted. The first step to obtaining financial aid is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

  • Grants
    These are awards you don't have to pay back. Most come from the government, such as the Federal Pell Grant. Learn more about grants here.

  • Scholarships
    Another financial gift you do not have to repay. Scholarships can come from a college, local community group, government, business or high school. They are granted based on different criteria such as geographical location, ethnicity, race, life experience you faced, music ability, sports ability and other characteristics.

  • Loans
    Loans are government-backed or privately lent out and do need to be repaid. You can learn more about loans from the U.S Department of Education's Student Financial Aid website.

  • Work-study programs
    Work-study is an on-campus employment opportunity offered through the school. It helps students earn money to pay for their tuition expenses. Click here to learn more.
