What if I need time off?
A leave of absence (LOA) is reserved for circumstances beyond the control of the student. For example: student accident, student (or immediate family) medical reasons, or death of an immediate family member. A LOA may be granted with proper documentation and must be requested and approved prior to the leave. Emergency LOA, whereas the student is physically unable to sign a leave request, may be granted with prior written request, provided the student completes the LOA request form and return it to the school via e-mail, fax, or in person. The effective date of the leave will be when the leave request is delivered to the school. The maximum time frame for a LOA is 90 days. However in the case of extenuating circumstances, (i.e. pregnancy or health), a leave may be extended up to 180 days. The school permits one LOA in a 12 month period.
How long will it take to complete the program?
The full time day program takes a year to complete. The part time day program takes 16-18 months to complete.
What if I go over my contract completion date?
If you do not complete the required number of hours of instruction and all other requirements before the calculated completion date, then they will be completed at the current hourly rate for the course enrolled in.
At what point do I not need my parent’s financial information to fill out my FAFSA?
- If you are 24 years of age or older.
- If you have a dependent child to whom you support at least 50%.
- If you are married.
