The Early Childhood Education program has been wonderful for me. Each class is offered only once per year, so there have been struggles with scheduling my prerequisites, but that's understandable for a program so small. By the second year, a strong community has been built with my classmates and the few professors that work there. We even have our own building on campus! These classes, and the degree that comes with their completion, are strongly focused towards careers in the field of Early Childhood. All of the professors are knowledgeable and helpful. Each professor also yearns to see every student succeed.

My school's tuition is comparatively low. However, I was very unhappy with new law / restrictions on federal financial aid. As I already have an general studies associates degree (10 years old), of which I paid for myself out of pocket (no loans, no scholarships, no grants) I was put in a "maximum time frame appeal" for too many credits, when I applied for financial aid as a returning, non-traditional student. Although others get grants and loans, I was only eligible for an unsubsidized loan (even though I live below the poverty line with my 2 young boys). I understand that this is due to former students defaulting on their education loans or being life long students getting grants / financial aid, but my credits were over 10 years old and most no longer valid for my intended major as they were more than 7 years old. I had to retake many classes and take classes that I've never taken before for my intended major (prerequisites). My second year, I still have a few more classes to take to transfer to a 4 year university and I am no longer eligible for ANY federal financial aid (grants or loans)! All because I have an old, outdated, "general studies" associates degree that I paid for myself with no government assistance.

Restricted Program Enterance Biased/Instructorss Are Wonderful! Acceptance into these programs does not seem to follow any set guidelines after the interview session. Whom ever the people interview that they like get into the programs regardless of their accademic background. I have seen students with stronger accademic backgrounds, experience, and grades looked over beccause they were not &quot;liked&quot; as much during the interview process. There definetly needs to be a better acceptance process in place following the interview.
The instructors are wonderful and very helpful. Every instructor I have had has always gone the extra mile to help ensure my success.
