Question by txslipknotgurl: How do I get a degree for teaching biology at the university of texas in austin?
i am broke, no money and i can find a job anywhere. so how can i fulfill my dream and get money.
I am going to be a senior next year and after that im going straight to college one way or another.
I don’t know what i should do as far as the fasfa or student loans go, i dont understand them or what the fasfa is.
If anyone could help it is much appreciated

One way that you can achieve your dream of teaching biology is by applying to Teach For America at the end of your college years. They pay for your loans and stuff, while you teach at a school to help close the national achievement gap.
Also, you could look to see if there are scholarships for students who promise to stay in your state and teach (an example is the NC Teaching Fellows Program) for certain time period.
As for the FAFSA and student loans, I would talk to a guidance counselor or a friend who is a current senior to find out how to fill it out, what it’s for, and how it can be used.
I hope I helped!
