Hello everyone:

I'm Lisa, a mother of two and a homemaker. I have attended college two times and both times things did not work out due to unforeseen circumstances. I'm now looking for a college online program because with small children it's very hard to be away from home. I cannot financially afford to go to school and I'm looking for a college that you can apply for financial aid as well as grants that are not needed to be paid back. If anyone has any help that they can provide please let me know. Thank you.

Hi Lisa:

If you apply for an online program offered from a regionally accredited traditional school, you would be eligible for the same federal and state financial aid/grants as a regular student (See our Frequently Asked Questions section for more information.)

If interested in other distance learning programs, inquire about financial aid options to see what aid might be available to find the most workable solution for you.
