18 year old having to pay for community college by herself... any tips/guidance?

So I am 18 and moved on this summer on my own. Luckily I have a friend who pays for housing, electricity, and water, but I am completely on my own as far as college is concerned. I am planning on either going to my local community college or taking online classes. Which would you suggest? I'm considering becoming a Vet Tech. I looked at online colleges and found Owens and Foster. Anyone take those before? As for college in general, are there any types of things I can do? Like apply for a Fafsa or grants? my parents refused to help me with college, and I'm a little scared, but they always held things over my head and made me feel like I can't do anything without them. I feel as though I should get away rather than to stay. Please don't hate on me. I'm just a scared 18 year old who needs help with financial guidance. I have about 2500 right now, but I also need to buy a car. So should I hold off on the car or buy a car and then work on paying college? i also have a steady job

Many online colleges are scams be very careful. Try looking for a local college that offers classes on a campus and online. Once you choose a college go to their financial aid office.
