  • You should get one at the start of each term (semester, quarter, trimester). You have to fill out the financial aid application once a year, but should get one for each term you are enrolled.

  • Stay away from for-profit schools. They exist, by law, to make money for their owners/shareholders; education is not their priority. When I was in HR, I did not interview candidates from the for-profit schools.

    Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university.

  • I have heard nothing but bad things about them. Be very careful.

  • I know my company would NEVER hire anyone with a degree from that "university". Go to a research university if possible.
