Are there financial aid options for adults returning to college?

Yes, there are many financial aid options for adults going back to school. You can get grants and scholarships, which are great because you don't have to pay them back. Check for special scholarships just for adult students. Don't forget about federal aid like Pell Grants, and some states have their own help too.

If your job offers tuition help, that's another way to pay for school. Student loans are also an option, but remember, you'll have to pay these back later. And, you might even get tax credits for going to school, which can save you money.
