More Ways to Pay for College

A full-time student is any student taking 12-credits or more. This can be important for financial aid and veteran's benefits, although some aid may be available for part-time students taking less than 12-credits. 

Apply for Financial Aid

Apply for financial aid as soon as you can. Even if you’re working full-time now, you can file an "extenuating circumstances" letter to explain that you may be working less or going through other life changes.
