        The average college graduate leaves college with not only a diploma but also around $20,000 dollars in student loans.  So here are a few ways to save on college tuition. First sign up with FAFSA, it isn’t a long process and you only need a small amount of information. If you are single and your parents claim you as a dependent, you will need to know their tax information. If you file taxes on your own you will need yours. FAFSA will also ask for personal account information to see how much money you have in your bank account. All of this information is secure and is used to determine whether you qualify and if so for how much.

It is often used to deliver federal scholarships. For detailed analysis check out the fafsa website at

Talk to your counselor about scholarships in your program. Lots of science degrees qualify for the smart grant, which requires you to be a junior and have at least a 3.0.

 I am always interested in how readers have been able to benefit from federal programs for students. What have you done?
