Thanks so much for the info and your input! That's all very helpful! From what I understand, this program is only 3 semesters long, correct?

Correct. You start spring semester, go to classes during the summer, and finish up fall semester with a December graduation.

Wow, that's quick! I'd definitely love getting my BSN in just a year! Does anyone know what the program approximately costs?

I went in to talk to a nursing advisor and he said the program itself is about 33k but including books, scrubs, etc it's about 39k

Yeah I'd say that's accurate. We have yet to have our summer tuition posted so it's hard to say. But I'd say anywhere between 35k and 40k. Keep in mind there are limits on the federal loans and for private loans too. You can submit paperwork to ASU to ask them to increase your estimated cost of attendance because they really low ball you and apparently private lenders use the estimated cost of attendance to determine how much in private loans to give you. Everyone somehow figured out a way to pay though. Obviously going through any of the MCC schools for concurrent enrollment is significantly cheaper... SIGNIFICANTLY. But it takes two years instead of less than one to graduate.

Do you have any recommendations for reputable private lenders? I will most likely need to take some private loans for this and have never gone that route so really not sure how to start.

Thanks to my amazing grandparents, I only have to take out federal loans and have never gotten a private loan. Let me poll my classmates to see who they are using!

I'm wondering if anyone in the current class or 2019 class have any daycare recommendations in the Peoria area?

I attended ASU downtown for my undergrad and that is where the nursing program is as well. My kids have all attended Phoenix Day which is just south of ASU off of Central. I still have 2 kids there and have been with then since 2013 and it has been great. ASU recommended them to me as the daycare option for the downtown campus.

I used Citizens Bank it was recommended by a friend who took out private loans. They do multiterm approval, have great interest rates, and reasonable deferment options if something arises. I would recommend a co-signer if your credit history isn't very big, it changes the rate immensely. Of course this is different for everyone.

The most important thing about receiving extra loans is to figure out how and when you want to spend your whole FAFSA, figure out what you need to include to prove a budget increase if necessary, and be ready to be very proactive with the finiancial aid office.

As far as tuition, it's $11k for spring/fall and $13k for summer, I spent around $300 for necessities, and books including summer are around $1300. Some people split the ebook package too :)

We definitely benefit from support in this program. Most people aren't working, have family/spouse financial, living, and/or moral support in some way. Gotta use whatcha have!

Sometimes petitions arise even if you get your materials in. There are times materials are overlooked by the advisement office, or something arises out of no where with your vaccine titers. Just know that as long as you submitted your material -no one had to fight to remain a candidate. It just takes a couple weeks for them to send your new material up the ladder.
