If you are US citizen or legal permanent resident, and plan to return to US to work, then earning a degree in places like Philippines are not going to get you any job. You cannot use any US financial aid abroad, as you might if you study in US. As you are aware, you must be fluent in the country's language at a high academic-technical level of proficiency, too. It appears from your post that earning a degree abroad such as you propose is not a viable option for your future.
IF you are US citizen or LPR, you need to apply for financial aid. Also, 80% of American college students WORK at least 20 hrs/wk to help pay expenses. Many start earning & saving for college by age 12-14, long before they can get a "job" under state child labor laws & work permits for minors.
Unless you are going to one of the world's premier universities - Oxford, Cambridge, Sorbonne, & other internationally renowned institutions - or studying some rare specialization hardly available in US, the luxury of studying abroad is far more expensive than studying in your own country. And only such degrees would be worth anything in the eyes of US employers anyway.
Get a job. Save up for school. Apply for financial aid if you qualify. Consider living at home & commuting to community college while working to be able to afford US schooling. Plus you have whatever it would cost to go to school abroad, which is not an insignificant amount you already have to work with. Work for what you want, or render yourself unemployable. Even Starbucks prefers baristas with some college, and not some cheesy foreign degree, either.
