Can you apply for financial aid at the last minute?? school is in mid september!! thanks?

Yes. Indeed, you should apply. But a great many scholarships were offered to other people months ago as an incentive to get them to attend a certain private school, college, or university. There is one thing going for you: a number of those scholarship winners are forfeiting an application fee, withdrawing, and going to a more prestigious school that they didn't think would take them when they accepted the scholarship. So there are a few scholarships going begging that you might get.

Federal loans and grants are much more likely to be available. The Financial Aid offices at colleges and universities also have work-study programs available. They are in the business of finding money to help needy students. Go see them!
You can apply now but it might take a while for it to come through, you can use it in the middle of the semester.
that is a question depending on state and situation. Generally it is possible to do so, and you would also need to defer your tuition payment pending financial aid application. Go to the school immediately and they will help you out.
fill out the fafsa online and keep in touch wit the school
Yes!! I did my FAFSA online only 2 weeks before classes were starting. I had to pay $25 for a deferral with my school and they held my classes and allowed me to attend until FA kicked in. The only drawback is that I had to pay out of pocket for my books and wait to be reimbursed for them, and that was a stretch. (Buy them online and buy older editions if you professors allow it.)
There are many scholarships given out by government and other organisations every year. You can try for some online government scholarships or grants. Fill up online forms and see if you are selected for the scholarship.
