I am a college freshman right now attending a community college. I plan on transferring to Central Michigan University next year. I need alot of help! I am paying for my college all on my own. I am only 17 years old, i will be 18 in November. I wanted to know how i am supposed to pay for my college. How am i supposed to get a loan. Someone is going to give an 18 year old a 60,000 loan for school? I dont believe, but i hear its true. I dont know what to do and i need the money to pay for school. Can anyone give me some answers?
