- by leana212 Dec 6, '11i need help financing pre req courses before entering nursing school. going for second degree. cheapest accredited courses i have found: university of phoenix online: 1200 to 2000 bucks per course. heeeeeeeeeeeeeelllllllllllllpppppppp!!!!!!!
- Dec 6, '11 by leenakHave you looked at community colleges? I'm taking my classes at a community college but they aren't cheap. Each class costs me $550. You can apply for financial aid. Start by filling out the fafsa.
I didn't apply for financial aid because I really wouldn't have qualified but I know of others who have gotten financial aid for their pre-reqs.
- Dec 6, '11 by crittytnCommunity colleges are much cheaper. I think you have to take a full-time course load to receive financial aid. But you'd be best off to talk to someone at a school's financial aid office. They have all the details and can look at your specific information to help you out better.
P.S. Shhhh...we can hear you!

Try a local community or technical college. Mine only cost me $700 total to do all my pre-req's.
- Dec 6, '11 by Bound2cBSNI agree that a community college is your best bet. As far as financial aid goes, my CC would only help if you were seeking a degree, regardless of the number of credit hours. Since I already had a degree and was only taking pre-requisites I got nothing. Maybe things will work out better at your CC.
- Dec 6, '11 by futurenurseya33I agree with everyone else. I'm going for a second degree. Since I already have a bachelor's degree financial aid doesn't apply to me for an associate level degree. But, the classes are still cheaper and i'm able to have a payment plan. Hope that helps.
