anonymous asked:

My parents refuse to fill out my FAFSA form. Does this mean I can't get financial help from it?? I'm freaking out about affording college and I feel like I should just give up on going and just work instead. Is college needed to survive? What jobs can I get without it?? Sorry for so many questions, I just have nobody to ask.
