Since I will be living at home, most of my expenses will be covered by my parents. The only thing that I will have to pay for will be my gas, school supplies, and food.
Paying for College
There are many ways of paying for college.
Since I will be going to a community college, for the first two years, I will not have as much debt as if I were to go to a four-year college. For the post-college debt that I do acquire, I will work hard to pay off the debt as soon as possible.
Working While In School
Do you plan on working while going to school?
What jobs are available on campus? Off campus?
A work-study program allows students to be able to earn money while paying for their education at the same time. Students may be employed by the institution, a federal, state, or local agency, or either private or non-private organizations.
Scholarships are financial rewards given to students for their achievements, generally in academics, but can also be for other achievements. These grants or payments are given to support a student's education.

Cal Grants are grants that are given to students in California that have met the GPA requirements and parent income requirements, by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC).
A Pell Grant is the money that the United States federal government contributes to help students that need it, pay for college. These grants, however, are limited to those with financial needs, that have not yet earned their first bachelor's degree.
Subsidized loans have better terms to help students out with financial aid. The amount received is usually determined by the school so that it will not exceed the student's financial need.
Unsubsidized loans do not have any specific requirements. Factors that affect the amount given are cost of attendance and other financial aid needs.

Yes, I plan on working while going to school.
On campus jobs could be for example, a student worker in an office. They would help with customer service, answering phones, and filing, etc. Off campus jobs could include part-time at a fast food restaurant, clothing store, or even at Dodger Stadium.
A Cheaper Education, the Same Bright Future
I chose to go to this school because it is less expensive than going to a four year college. Even though I'll only be attending this school for two year, I will be able to get the same education for a fraction of the cost.
