What's the difference between Training and Academic Programs?

Only academic programs provide college credit, transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and are eligible for federal financial aid (FAFSA). Training programs can be completed in a matter of weeks or months. These are not eligible for federal financial aid, but they may qualify for other scholarships and grant funds.
