Did you know that the state of Missouri has a program to help adults with the expenses associated with post-secondary education? It's called Fast Track and we think it's pretty great. Here's what you need to know:

- You cannot apply if you already have a Bachelor's degree
- You must be planning to enroll part time or full time in a post-secondary program
- You can make no more than $80,000 filing jointly, or no more than $40,000 per year, filing any other tax status
