First, make sure you know what you'll have to pay at each school that admitted you. Each college that admits you should provide a financial aid award. If you didn't get one or you have questions, contact the college's financial aid office and find out how much grant, scholarship, or gift aid you're getting from that school. If you still have a gap to fill, look for scholarships before you take out a loan. Here are some resources.
