Question:I'm having a kid soon and my income will be less then 1000 dollars a month, my bf will be unemployed and i can claim that i pay 1500 for rent a month. Does anyone know what i can get and how to go about it

Answers:
once the child is born you will be considered a independent student. you should be able to get full financial aid such as pell grants, eof and state aid your state has to offer. the most important thing to do is to wait until your child is born to apply for financial aid. also if you can't complete an associate degree in 3 years don't apply now because once the three years are up you do not get any more money for the associtate degree and you will have to go to a 4 year college to finish your degree which might be harder to finish.
