Accreditation

Why is accreditation important?
Accreditation is a voluntary exercise and without it, colleges and universities cannot provide federal or state financial aid. There are six regional accrediting agencies in the United States and institutions accredited by these regional associations will usually accept credits in transfer from other institutions similarly accredited. In general, credits earned from nationally accredited schools will not be transferable to regionally accredited institutions.

Financial Aid, Grants, & Scholarships

What is FRAG and how can I apply for it?
The FRAG is the Florida Resident Access Grant and it is available to qualified students who choose to attend a private, regionally accredited college in the State of Florida. To qualify you must be a resident of Florida (for at least one year), not already have a bachelor’s degree and be registered for at least 12 credit hours. The FRAG is available in the Fall and Winter semesters and the amount of the grant varies according to what is approved in the Florida State Budget. This grant is not based on income. Ask your Admissions Coordinator for more information!
Can I apply for financial aid?
Financial aid is available to all qualified students. There are grants and loans available to help offset the cost of your education. You may also be employed by one of our corporate partners which could earn you a tuition discount. Please check the corporate partner list linked to our admissions webpage. We encourage you to contact one of our financial aid professionals, who will take you through the financial aid process, step by step. Your admissions coordinator can help you get started.

General

Which campus should I choose?
Convenience is the key! You can attend classes at one or both of our campus locations, depending on your personal schedule and preference each semester. Online classes are always an option too! We offer many online courses each semester to supplement your college schedule. Of course, if you live closer to one of our Learning Sites, there are full time Admissions Coordinators to help you make program decisions and help you with the enrollment process. If you prefer to take your entire program online, we have many programs that are offered in the 100% online format.
