  1. Hi Jessica Velasco,
    I have a question, my daughter wants to continue the university in northwest illinois she want to be a marriage counseling but we don’t know where to apply for more help to pay the university she already aply for FAFSA.
    She went to cominity college for 2 years and she need 2 more years in the university to graduate.
    Please can you help me with more information.
    Thank you so much.
    Have a great day Jessica.

    • Hi Martha. In addition to filling out the FAFSA, it might be worth it for her to visit her Financial Aid Office to see if there are any other scholarships available from the university. In addition, have her check in with her marriage counseling department to see if they know of any scholarships – sometimes major specific scholarships are not always advertised widely. Lastly, keep looking for outside scholarships.

  2. Thank you so much for the time and energy you put into this excellent blog, Jessica! It is VERY helpful!
