You may not have realized it but financial aid is available for some technical college students.

Most financial aid is based on the financial need or ability of you and your family to contribute toward the cost of higher education. Your family's income, assets, number of family members in college, and other factors are considered.

You will not know if you qualify for grants, loans or other aid unless you apply. It's well worth the effort.
