Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial Aid process can be difficult. Every single day I log into my account I find a new form that needs to be submitted! They will not even begin to process my financial aid until all forms are submitted.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The standard tuition is a little high, but due to the fact that I am in the Military Program for spouses, my tuition fees dropped about 30%. Financial Aid is made available for those who qualify. The FAFSA, CAL Grant, Pell Grant, etc., are made easily accessible through the schools website. Also, the financial aid office can be easily reached and the staff are more than helpful.

Tuition & Financial Aid: There is a multitude of knowledge available, but it's extremely expensive for those who don't qualify for Federal/State Aid and jobs are hard to get in this economy. Tuition is expensive, tutoring is available for those who take more classes, but it's difficult to get those classes without financial aid to begin with. The classes are very interesting, but feel somewhat rushed for time in that the student learning outcomes seem to take a backseat to the importance of a "letter" (grade) instead of long-term absorption of the information itself. I don't qualify for financial aid, so it's discouraging to attend financial aid workshops. However, I'm certain it is helpful to those who do use it who otherwise might not be able to attend school at all. For those who can qualify, one must fill out a FAFSA. Those who do not must work harder to find the cheapest possible (while still efficient) solution to buying things like books and must have greater patience to deal with shortcomings in "pinching pennies". I would advise gathering all possible coupons (like those found in newspapers) for grocery shopping, spend a few hours each day for about two weeks looking on every imaginable site one can buy textbooks on (it isn't always practical to spend so much at the college bookstore-it can be just as expensive as the classes themselves). Buy all books one can used and paperback instead of the expensive new versions. Renting a book can be a bad idea if one will need it for future classes (e.g. I wouldn't be rid of a beginner's math book when I know I'll need to reference it for future higher-level math courses). Get books early and begin studying long before class starts so one has a better chance of retaining the information and avoiding exam-crams/burning the midnight oil.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have gotten way more financial aid then I anticipated for for sure. I was concerned with the cost but when I went to pay it was only $16!!!! I am constantly receiving money from grants and things! I am not really sure why they keep sending me money, but they are.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education that I am getting is well worth the money.
