This is my second go around with education. The first time i was funded by the Bank of Dad but this time I have been funding myself up to this point. After this spring semester I am assuming I will be a degree candidate and so I am curious if anyone can offer me any insight as to how financial aid works and any tips would be appreciated. Also, one question I have is to qualification. I plan on quitting my job, renting out my house, and moving to the area in order to go full time, starting with fall semester. So technically at that point I will not have any income (other than rent from my home) however I have a positive net worth. Would I still qualify for financial aid? Theoretically I have enough capital to fund myself, including room and board, over the next 2 years however I prefer to use student loans because at the end of it i'd rather have cash and debt as opposed to no cash no debt. Does anyone know how this works and if HES students are given the same financial aid opportunities as the 'normal/traditional' students? Is it hard to get financial aid in amounts sufficient enough to also cover room and board? Was anyone ever in a similar situation to me? And also, Thank you so much in advance for any information anyone can share with me.
