Possible changes to my financial aid?

As many of you are aware, we are transitioning into a new political season. This year marks the end of President Obama’s second term, and many have campaigned in the hope of taking his seat in the Oval Office. With many new propositions taking effect and a new president taking office in January, there are many possible changes in laws, budget cuts, and issues that might affect you significantly. Education is always a hot button issue when a new president comes in, and changes in education usually affects the financial aid because of the rising cost of education. At the moment, utilizing financial aid through Pell Grants and Government Student loans alleviate the costs for students to be able to afford college. If you are thinking of going back to school or if you are going to make that your New Years Resolution, don’t wait and do it now! We don’t know what possible changes could come with regards to financial aid so take advantage and get started! Education is the best defense for lay offs and a bad economy, and obtaining a certification on a skilled profession makes you employable. Careers like in the medical field are always in demand, so it’s a very safe and well paying field to get into.

One possible change in financial aid policy  is an income-repayment plan. Income-repayment plan states that for a student loan to be approved the possible income of the career you are studying for has to be able to repay the loan in a given time frame. In other words, the field that the student is getting into has to generate enough income to justify the loans taken out. Careers like Medical Assistant and Medical Billing & Coding are well above the repayment ratio to payback the loans. A better income, a stable and secure career, and an excellent standard of living for your family can all be achieved through proper certification. This can all be possible in nine months of finishing your course at CCC. Nine months of college for a lifetime of better opportunities is a very good ratio! Get started today before any political changes take into effect.

Financial aid is available for those who qualify.  Why stay at a college where there are waiting list for courses and long graduation rates when you can do it in about nine months?  What can help you in an economic recession is to be a working professional with a certification within an ever-growing industry that’s always in demand. Many political changes are coming our way so make sure to be ready for them and start preparing for your future today! See what a career in the medical field can do for you and your family.
