Even curricular activities can impact your admission. So while you are still in high school, work on those grades, improve your test scores, take advanced placement (AP) classes and tests.
Financial Aid, Student Loans, College Grants, Scholarships
Not everybody can afford to pay for college, so there are a lot of programs that can assist you in defraying some of the costs. Financial Aid is a minefield of paperwork and requirements, but if you need it so that you can attend college, you better jump right in and figure it out. There may be a lot of options available to you but don't get discouraged, keep at it. Sometimes getting financial aid is like finding a job; you have to send out a lot of resumes, fill out a lot of forms, be rejected numerous times, but finally you may find what works out best for you.
Student loans are typically financial aid where you are required to repay most of not all of the costs. Be sure to read all the fine print and discuss everything with a parent or counselor who is on your side. College grants can be financial aid that may not have to be repaid. Many grants are dependent on family finances for qualification. Scholarships can be awarded for excellence in the classroom or athletic field.
In most cases all types of financial aid do not cover every cost associated with going to college, some may cover only smaller specific needs such as books. So you may need to apply for multiple types of aid to get the financing you need to attend college. You might even have to work a job to pay for some of the costs. Future employers will like that you worked to help put yourself through college no matter what type of job it was. So don't sell any of those things short.
