Time Running Out for Thousands in Grants for a College Education at Mid-Continent

Financial aid loans and often grants are available to make going back to college affordable. State grant funding is based on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be gone as soon as the middle of February. If you complete your financial aid application now, you could get thousands in assistance for your education. Even those with high incomes almost always qualify for nearly $3,000. Applying for financial aid does not commit you to attend college; it commits the money for you to attend college. ADVANTAGE is trying to reach all those who are even considering attending in 2012-2013.
