Can I use financial aid for rent?
Question by Mike C: Can I use financial aid for rent?
Complicated question… I am going to attend a local community college this fall and I just filled out my fafsa and my EFC=0. I want to get an apartment that is close to school. I am going to be attending full-time so I have to cut back my hours at work. I dont know if I will be able to pay rent, food, car etc. The tuition of the school is really cheap, lets say for 12 hours of coursework its $ 875 for just tuition. anybody have any idea if I will get more than that to pay for other expenses? I really need help with this matter!! any ideas?

It should cover your expenses while in school, but you have to pay it back with interest.
