    RonnieDita. Go to the FASA website and complete the application. In a few weeks they will send you an email stating if you qualified for financial aide. I qualified for a loan and I don't have to pay anything upfront.

    Thanks girl I've already done that. I'm ok for the first 6 months but if I go further than that my financial aid will already be used up for the year....

    Wow! I see your dilemma? They have a payment plan but the payments are outrageous! I applied for scholarships from WGU but have not heard a thing. Try your local bank. Its hard coming up with the money but it will be worth it.

    If you run out of financial aid, is there any way you can apply for a private student loan through a financial institution such as Chase, Citibank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America or your local credit union?

    I once received a $20,000 private 'career training' loan through Sallie Mae. My friend received a $16,000 loan through Chase. If you have decent credit, this option is doable and affordable.
