Module 10: Funding Your Education
The objective of Module 10 is to understand the approximate cost of college. Know that aid is available to help with the cost of college. Know how to apply for government-sponsored loans, grants and work-study programs. Be familiar with the top websites to search for scholarships.
The costs of college include required expenses, such as tuition, room and board and books. Other sorts of expenses are optional: do you plan on eating out? Buying new clothes? Driving your own car and paying for gas, insurance and maintenance for your car? Those are all nice options, if you can afford them. Otherwise, eat at home, shop second hand, and ride a bike or take the bus!
