    How do you get financial aid w/ Excelsior I thought it doesnt qualify for FAFSA, only loans?

    Health and safety is easy...you can do that in 2 weeks for way cheaper. It's like fundamentals.

    The classes can qualify for Federal Financial Aid (just like the BSN/MSN classes) it's the challenge exams that don't qualify for financial aid.

    yes! So happy that they're opening the classes up. Always good to have options. Even better they qualify for the student aide grants and loans

    So how does this work? I know you have to enroll in the college to register for the classes. Just wondering if you have to take more than one at a time to be considered eligible for financial aid? or does the aid cover it even if you only sign up for one? I'm taking my A&P exam next week and then going to knock Micro out. Plan to enroll immediately after Micro so that I can sign up for the Transitions class starting July 3rd.

    Hi mochasouter. The A & P is an overwhelming wealth of information. It can be a little difficult to know exactly how to approach the material. I use the study guide that Excelsior provides as a tool to guide my study. I am mostly just using Study Guide 101 and a few online practice quizzes (including the Excelsior practice test for A & P). I did not buy the textbook because I have actually had an A & P course at the community college. Unfortunately, it was older than 5 years so Excelsior won't accept it. Same with Micro. Oh well, just gotta get these 2 tests out of the way then I can enroll and start the online courses! Good luck to you!

    Those 8 weeks course follow the tuition of the undergrad wow that's like 425 per credit. I rather use studygroup101 materials and test out true you get financial aide but the overall cost jumps up like crazy for the same course. Test out is $325 plus $75 for the practice exams. And you can be ready in 3-4 weeks studying on your own, but to each their own. I prefer to test out.
