- Jun 17, '10 by ballardHi! That was my problem too with those schools. I think that the rest of the schools in the region that offer nursing participate with Stafford loans. I am applying at Shoreline and Everett for their RN program. Check them out!!

- Oct 19, '10 by BallardJoI don't know why I was offered what I was--I do work full time but make a bit less than the median salary for Seattle and will stop working once I get into a program. I also took all my pre-reqs at NSCC and got good grades, so maybe the tuition waiver was partially merit-based? If I were you, I would talk to their financial aid office and see what they can do.
