Online Degrees (University of Phoenix) VS. Community College?

We Answered:

My experience - friends that did online degrees and also in-class participants in "colleges" like those online - is that they are way overpriced and like you said, aren't considered quite legitimate degrees.
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!

What's the best community college in the phoenix area?

We Answered:

I went to GCC (Glendale Community College - main campus and north campus) for pharmacy prerequisites. The main campus is a HUGE campus that offers a little bit of everything. I needed to take evening classes due to my work schedule and it worked out great!

My brothers went to PVCC (Paradise Valley Community College) for Fire Science and they had a lot of fun. They both work for the Phoenix Fire Department now.

I guess it just depends on what you are interested in and where you live. Since you are looking to move to the east area you might want to check out Scottsdale Community College. Here is a link to a website that has all the community college info:

Good luck!
