There might be some impediments in getting the student aide loans. There is an eligibility criteria that one has to meet in order to get the loan. The loans are given to students who are in serious financial need. Visit http://studentaid.ed.gov/eligibility#basic-eligibility-criteria for more information.

I don't think it would be a good idea...get out of debt first.

Start with your local community college and talk to someone at the financial aid office. Avoid the private, for-profit schools like the plague. They can provide a decent education, but they're usually more interested in your money than anything else. I think it might depend on what that $10,000 debt is from; if it's a mortgage or a car, that's one thing, but if it's credit card debt, that might be something else.

Whats ?the plague? And yes their credit cards dept it's that worse? Put all 6 cards together and it'll add up to a $10.000 dept, this just happened less than a year ago but I've been with all them for over 10yrs. You think once I pay in full they'll forgive me :l. #thanks for your time&advice.
