    I'm just getting out of the Marines, and i'm not really sure what to do about school.

    I have no GI bill (long story, don't ask), or any pay assistance at this time. I don't know how I could afford college. I want to go to Missouri State University.

    Right now I work full time and make about $18.00 an hour. Although I pay about $300 a month in car insurance, and $325/month car payment. Few other payments too.

    I'm not even sure what questions to be asking. Should I be seeking some kind of tuition assistance? Who do I talk to?

    I would say apply for loans, but also take a look at changing your car. I'm 19, and for nice used sports cars (944s) I pay about 1k every six months. If you are dropping 300 a month, something needs to change.

    sounds like you will need student loans for your education.

    if you're near campus you should schedule an appointment to speak with an admissions advisor if you can. they should be able to answer all of your questions and give you some good suggestions
