Filing taxes early is recommended, but using estimates for FAFSA from previous years is possible provided the correct data is updated later after taxes are filed for the current year. Please note that financial aid deadlines are strictly enforced, so submit your application early. Millions of students that would have qualified for some financial aid were late in submitting required forms. The official FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov and is free.

Western Dakota Technical Institute
College degree majors with high starting-salaries after graduation include physical sciences, business administration, and engineering. If you remain true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase as you gain experience.

By taking some of your required degree courses online, you may be able to graduate earlier, thus saving money on tuition. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your spare time to advance your career.

Apply to several tiers of selective universities simultaneously, and if you have the grades and test scores, give yourself a better chance to get into a top-rated program by doing something outstanding in high school or community college. It isn't as hard as you might think to get an article written in your local newspaper. An advanced degree will stick with you for a long time, so apply yourself and work hard for a few years, graduating from the best school you can. The difference between a first-tier and a third-tier college will have an impact on both job promotions, and your networking ability.
