I'm a senior that will be attending UNCW next year. My cost to attend that school is around $16k per year. I filled out the FAFSA and am currently applying for scholarships. So far the only financial aid I've gained through the FAFSA is a $5,500 Direct Stafford Loan. So that only pays for about a third of my Freshman year. I'm wondering if any of you guys found a decent way to pay for college that won't put my family in a hole when I'm done school.
