Do what I did...WORK!!!
I was a waiter in college, I made a killing especially on football weekends.
And employers will want to know how you financed your education.
Yes, WORK! Also not mentioned yet (I don’t think) on this thread is GI Bill Benefits. My son started college then determined he was not sufficiently self-disciplined to go through at age 18, joined the Marine Corps for 4 years. Then worked full time at Home Depot and went to school full time, getting GI Bill Benefits, plus HD gave some bonuses or subsidy for his tuition. Got his degree 9 years after high school graduation, but saw it through and has been steadily employed since age 15.
