Online Degrees (University of Phoenix) VS. Community College?
To my knowledge, all colleges now offer online classes. Not all classes are offered online… but you’ll be surprised at how many are. This option would get you out of taking night classes…
If you have an idea of where you might be transfered to next, I would suggest submitting your FAFSA information to colleges in that area as well as the one you want to attend where you are now. This will cover your butt when you have to transfer and relieve a lot of frustration dealing with financial aid tracking. (Keep in mind that if you stick to online classes and then move, you probably will be able to finish the semester online and not worry about it – do keep your school informed of any changes though.)
Generally, student loans become payable 60 days after a six month grace period, after you graduate, drop to less than half time status or withdraw from school.
Sit down with an adviser at your local community college and pose all of your questions to them. Then, while you are there, talk with a financial aid adviser as well.
Regardless, your first step is to fill out a FAFSA. You can do that here http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/
Good luck and congratulations on your decision to continue your education!
If your only other choice is to go to a community college — do that.
I previously had a roommate who was in the Coast Guard and had started going to school. During his semester the hurricanes around Florida hit and he was called away for “extra” duty. I know that b/c it was a military situation, the college allowed him to withdraw and get his money back. So, that could be a question that you ask any college you are interested in.
