USAO's president, Dr. John Feaver, says the staff works with students to secure scholarships and Pell grants and 20 percent of their students get help from Oklahoma's Promise, established in 1992 to help students whose parents make less than $50,000 a year.

Associate degrees

The other is Oklahoma City Community College.

The community college offers associate degrees that can be completed in two years and prepares students for jobs in top career fields.

According to OCCC President Dr. Paul Sechrist, Oklahoma City Public Schools and Western Heights High School graduates can attend OCCC and have 100 percent of their tuition waived. This program is called OKC Go!

If you find yourself standing on the corner of hope and worry, don't despair. There are options out there and skilled people to help you explore them.
