How do I get a student loan for a trade school in Pasadena, California if I am a parolee without a co-signer?
Student loans are not credit based. If you are enrolled at least half time in an accredited program that is eligible to participate in federal aid programs you can get a stafford loan. You will need to fill out a FAFSA application, www.fafsa.ed.gov You will be restricted from getting aid if you were convicted of a drug offense but it is not forever, and it is only if you were convicted while receiving title 4 finanical aid.
If you are planning to start school this FAFSA and the 0708 FAFSA. If you are not starting till fall (or maybe summer, ask your school) you will only need to do the 0708 fafsa. Apply right away!
