The Financial Aid Office is Your Friend

Don't shy away from seeking financial aid from the college you are attending or applying for. Many don't seek financial aid from universities simply because they are too proud. With the cost of education these days, you HAVE to get over that. By not humbling yourself and seeking help, you're practically asking for years more of student debt.

The university financial aid administrator is there to help you. They are full of advice and may open financial doors you haven't even thought of.

Don't get cocky either trying to butt in front of other students and sucking everything out of them. You don't want to bite the hand that feeds you. Everybody wins if you're nice about it.
