Most incoming college students are understandably concerned about going into debt to pay for their education. The good news is you can reduce how much it costs you to earn your college degree. Follow these simple tips to earn lots of scholarship money, and you’ll be well on your way to lowering your college costs.
If the idea of paying for college is putting you into a cold sweat, take one important step to get free money: Complete the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
