I am currently pursuing a career as a medical transcriptionist. I have been searching the net for over six months trying to find an online school that can be funded by a grant of some kind. I had recently applied for Fafsa "Pell Grant" for over twelve schools that offered an online medical transcription course. Unfortunately, I was told that all of them are listed under "continuing education" and cannot be covered by federal funds. Currently I do not have the money to finance my schooling, but I want this badly. If anyone out there knows of any online transcription school that accepts financial aid please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

NSU in Natchitoches and LSU-Eunice, both in Louisiana, offers online medical terminology and transcription courses online when last I checked. Since both are state colleges, they definitely accept Pell - and they don't charge out of state tuition for online courses. I graduated from NSU, so I really recommend that school :)
