Quote from BeccaLove0
I qualify for the Pell Grant which completely covers the ADN
I have student loan debt from studying psychology previously and will finally have that paid off around the time I complete my ADN so the thought of taking out loans for the CEP is difficult for me.. I would like to pay out of pocket for the RN-BSN program through WGU once I get to that point.
I know you said you're doing the ADN program because of money reasons. I don't know if I can change your mind, but I wanted to say that there are SO many scholarships
available. I did NAU, and had no idea of the amount of scholarship
available. NAU gave me (and most classmates) $10,000 our first year just for applying early. Maricopa scholarships go each semester with scholarships not given out. I highly recommend applying. (Scholarship Management System | AcademicWorks
and/or Scholarship Management System | AcademicWorks
are the scholarship pages).
You fill out a main form and then it can automatically select you for some, and you can apply to others. I received several scholarships through maricopa and NAU. One very large one. Even if you don't do CEP (which I recommend, but of course understand your reasoning!) apply through maricopa! It is worth the time you put in - save your paragraphs, and keep them relatively short - you can save them in a word doc and rephrase/reuse them for new scholarship apps.
