How to reach a higher education, like college; for DACA beneficiaries.

After I graduated from high school, I took a two year break so I could save money for school (this was two years before DACA). I worked my ass off, but I was able to collect enough.
It has taken a bit longer than average to get my BS (5 years) but it's something no one can ever take away from me. All while attending school (full time) I juggled full time jobs. I went from cashier, to a Best Buy Manager, to finally working in my field.
And regarding money, look for schools to that offer in-state tuition. But regardless, it still cost me 20k per year. I was lucky enough that Best Buy offered a reimbursement program.
