So i am planning on taking my pre-reqs at Union County College this fall part time so I can apply to nursing school
after I establish a decent GPA (my past college grades involved unrelated courses and i did very poorly
) I will probably apply to both Trinitas and Muhlenberg. I spoke with a co-worker who went to Muhlenberg through UCC and she mentioned that she got absolutley 0 financial Aid!!! She is at an age where she can claim herself as an independent, no kids, not living with parents, and makes roughly the same as me (possibly a little bit more, $30,000 annually or so) which is the same situation basically as me. It really made me worried that I seriously cannot afford to even bother with nursing school which breaks my heart.... I am also NOT looking to take out any loans and working with my job's tuition reimbursment plan.
Does anyone have an experiences with recieving financial aid with these schools
, and if so did they give you any significant amount??? I was looking at the fees per credit and i almost fell out of my chair!!!!
I'd just like to get an idea of what i should be planning on spending out of my own pocket
