My best friend and I are planning on getting an apartment together in a few months, so I was wondering what your condition has to be for you to be eligible for welfare and also to have your college paid for. My sister and her husband get their college completely paid for because they're married and live on their own; my dad said he read a bit about it and it sounded like not living with your parents isn't enough to get your college paid for, you have to be married as well. I know nothing about welfare.

You have to apply for financial aid (FAFSA).

meh not the answer I was looking for, I was hoping to find a general answer without having to apply for FAFSA/welfare. Hopefully when I go back I'll get more than a loan.

Then learn how to save money. Even if you had a part time job when you were in high school (I'm talking only 20 hours at minimum wage), you'd still have over $20,000 to spend. So what you really want to say is:

I had a job, but I spent my money like an idiot and now expect someone else to take care of it for me.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and class less and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

A working class hero is something to be.

Incorrect, douchebag. I have had this job for two months, it's my first job. Between $10k and $12k a year if I spent nothing at all. I do a good job of saving my money imo.

EDIT: While we're at it I don't think the government should pay for anything for anyone. However they steal money from my paycheck and every time I buy something, so I think the least they can do is pay for my education since I'm going to be giving them money for the rest of my life.

Depending on how much you make and how many hours you work, you could get money or food stamps from welfare. You'd have to contact whatever number your state provides for that department. Also, yes apply for FASFA.
Also, in my state at least, only one person per household can be on welfare.

There's only one plausible way to solve your dilemma. You gotta marry your roommate.

Don't worry it's not gay. As explained in this clip from It's always sunny.

Submitting your FAFSA form is the *only* way to find out what kind of financial aid you're eligible for.

I feel bad looking at porn simply because of the ol' story that a lot of those girls were molested as children, But I've never heard of midgets being molested, so it doesn't matter to me anymore, as that's the only kind of porn I watch.

Apparently the tedious, twenty minute process is just too much for TS.

It's the same with welfare. You don't know what you are eligible for until you apply.

It's not too much, I was just wondering if I could get a general answer without having to apply, guess not. Thanks for the help though.

The maximum Pell grant award is $5500. That's if you're extremely poor. Food stamps, general assistance and other welfare programs vary based on your income (as does financial aid). Schools also offer scholarships; for example, I'm getting a scholarship for being on the honor roll.

Ah okay that's lame. I almost wish I was married. I got $1500 from the Pell Grant last time I did the FAFSA, and YSU is fairly cheap so that's not too bad, hopefully I get a bit more when I move out.

First Paragraph: Well there's your problem, I applied for a worker's permit the day I turned 15 so I could start working. So when I get a healthy chunk of my already shitty pay taken to pay for shit like this, I get REALLY mad.

Second Paragraph: Obviously we share some of the same thoughts here, but I still can't believe people get out of High School and NOT know how they're going to pay for college. Like I said, you could have easily been working 4 YEARS before now, or applied for scholarships like someone else said...

Oh, believe me, I know that money doesn't guaranteed you're completely covered,(Plus I'd expect some of it to be spent). But nevertheless it helps.

My wife was getting grants before we got married. Now that we are married she isn't eligible for them anymore. It's not about marital status, it's about financial stability and your GPA. Unfortunately, I make too much [apparently? ] for my wife to qualify for the grants she was getting before. Goodbye free college!

It's not always that easy. My parents wouldn't let me work until I got out of high school because they thought it would affect my grades. They had to sign papers for me to work, and they wouldn't.

I applied everywhere within a reasonable distance from my house since I was 16, I never started getting interviews until I was 20, and those were rare. I've heard people say that this is one of the worst areas to try to find a job in, I wouldn't know but it feels that way. I'm hoping to get a seasonal job working at a Toys R Us warehouse for Christmas so I can save all of that money and not have a hard time starting out on my own.

I'm getting paid to go to school, I got 8 grand a year to go with my scholarships and the Pell Grant, so filing the FASFA is definitely worth it.
Poop.

Meh, I'm in the military so I might transfer my GI bill to her and stay in to get my degree. Either way the government is paying for it, haha.

My sister in law got grants, then failed her first college class because she decided to party all the time. now she has to pay back money for the classes she took and probably won't get any more free college money from the gov't.
