Many students wonder how to pay for college when federal student aid or loans do not meet all of a student’s financial needs. There are additional student financial aid programs that do not typically make up a substantial portion of a student’s aid package and may not be available to all students. However, for students that do qualify, they may be of significant benefit. Apex Tech strongly urges all of our students to take a little time and contact the individual programs and do a little research on the internet, or at your local library, to learn about these lesser known programs.
Social security survivor benefits may continue to be available to students after the age of 18 if they continue enrollment in an accredited institution of higher education. Students should check their local social security office for information on continued eligibility and benefits.
Educational benefits for unemployed/displaced workers vary from state to state. Contact your state employment office or Department of Labor for information.
