Financing your college is an important facet of the higher education experience. According to College.gov:
"Many students worry that tuition and the other costs of continuing their education will be out of reach. But don't let the price tag stop you. It's only part of the picture. Keep in mind the major benefits of investing in your education.
Most students receive some kind of financial aid to help pay for the cost of their education. A few students even get a "free ride," where all their costs are paid for.
With your determination and assistance from financial aid, you can make the education you dream about a reality."
