Ladies, the school I attended is partnered with a few community colleges. So, you get all the benefits of the community college, including extra scholarship options. I believe, however, if you take this route the course won't be self-paced. But, I don't know too much about this. It doesn't hurt to call and ask though, if your worried about affording the school.
ETA: sorry... I edited the scholarship amount. I don't know what I was thinking. LOL! I only qualified for a small portion of the loan (not the majority of it). oops.
Yes, Career Step is partnered with Everett Community Collegewww.everettcc.edu
But the course isn't self-paced. It requires 40 hours/week for 9 months. And although they take federal financial aid, the program is $4200 and change, whereas Career Step is only $1560 with job placement, plus whatever upgrades you want--text materials, cassettes, etc. I thought about going with the CC, but decided to wait until I can pay Career Step itself, b/c of the fact that the CC gives you a time limit. With a baby at home, who knows how much time I'll have, but I KNOW it won't be 40 hr/wk!
