By the sounds of it you need a job.If your working even part time,most financial places will consider you for a loan.Everyones credit rating starts somewhere.Does USA government have any student programs that you could apply for?Sometimes there are grants you can apply for(those are the ones you don't have to pay back) and then theres the loans which you do have to pay back but not until your working and then the interest rates are really low.It would be nice to know trhe reasons your parents are unwilling to help you since you are just asking so that you can have a career to live on instead of just a job.Good-Luck
