Apply for Financial Aid & Transfer Scholarships
The first step is to go to www.fafsa.ed.gov and begin your official Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Keep in mind to be eligible for many scholarships, you still must apply for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA). Check the Financial Aid page on each institutions website for possible scholarships. The Financial Aid process can take 2-3 months so begin at least that far in advance of the quarter you want to start college.
Other Forms of Financial Aid
During the application process to transfer institutions, check on available scholarships specifically for transfer students! Many colleges have them. Check with each institution as well as the community college where you are currently attending.
