Answer
Hi Walter,
Thanks for asking a question. Congratulations on your sobriety! I know that it has been a challenge, but your perseverance will pay off. I recommend that you fill out the FAFSA to see if you qualify for any Federal Student Aid.  There are options for college - online, campus, a mixed modalities. Forestry is a very specific field, and not all universities have this major.

Here is a list:

I also recommend checking out job/career opportunities in this field before deciding on this major - or any other major.

Again, congratulations on sobriety...keep up the good work!
