Tuition & Financial Aid

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Yes! So far I believe it has been worth the tuition , because I have learned so much more than what I knew before I

started school.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel as though I am getting a good education, and the structure of the online learning process is very convenient for my busy schedule. I am not happy that I had to put out of pocket money for a lab kit that didn't even arrive until after week 2 of my class.

Any communications with the financial aid office have been positive, as they do give complete explanation of benefits. I will say, however that I was told that all of my financial aid paperwork was complete a couple of months ago when I inquired, and then all of a sudden it popped up that my independent worksheet wasn't signed. Not sure why that wasn't noticed when I submitted a couple of weeks ago. I hope this doesn't affect my aid.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The only fees that I came up against were those for my books

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I'm worried about paying the money back once it's due but the education and future job will be worth it. The financial aid process was easy and went quickly. I wish I would've received more aid than I did but some is better than none.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: They have asked me for a document I don't have 8 times.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

As far as the financial aid process goes, students are fairly split down the middle, with some saying that it went smoothly and without hassles, and others saying that there were a few snags involved. Many times, students get confused about the minor and major fees involved in the financial aid process. However, most students are generally happy with the cost of their education and feel they are getting their money's worth. 

Advisers can be very helpful. They are often happy to walk students through any problems that arise during the financial aid process. They are also very respectful of students and get back to them with answers to their questions in a timely manner.
