It is safe to say that it is a basic fact that many, if not most, applicants/ students have no credit history or who have a bad credit history. Then, of course, there are those applicants/students who exhibit financial responsibility and fiscal skills that would shame a banker. Some students do not need to worry about credit at all, because of their family's financial situation or because they are in some kind of academic, athletic or other type of scholarship. . There are a large number of private and public scholarship locators available to match a wannabe student with a variety of financial assistance options. The schools themselves offer US the Government of the PELL grant funding local and special scholarships endowed by alumni, businesses, local citizens, not a small percentage of the applicants or the students. .

However, I have also received a local student $300 per semester scholarship that requires no payment at all, and was available for each of the following semester if the required GPA is maintained. Good ol' Miss (no pun intended) Annie S. Tillman of Panther Burn, Mississippi, had majored in and taught English at Ole Miss and she wanted others to like me, to follow his example. Thank You, Miss Annie.} . Do not rule out the possibility of attending a Junior/Community College(J/CC) for their first two years of the pursuit of your degree. Stay and eat at home while attending J/CC allows you to work and save money to increase any scholarship or other types of financial assistance.
