Chalk Talk: Paying for College
Check out specific organizations in your area and see what help is out there. Your high school guidance counselor will help guide you through these processes, but do not be afraid to ask for help whenever you are confused or overwhelmed with the process. Consider community colleges as well. You can get basics out of the way before transferring to a larger four-year university. Also, a meal plan can be expensive, though, again, it is often cheaper than buying food in other ways. Textbooks is one of the big expenses. Lastly, if your school offers AP courses, take as many as you can. Prepare well for the AP exams, as many colleges award course credit to students whose scores are high enough. The better you do in AP courses in high school, the fewer classes you have to take – and pay for – in college.
