How will I pay for college?

Financial aid isn't just for kids. There are programs for Training students and Veterans, too!

What tests will I need to take?

Many adults returning to college will need to take the MTC placement test.  All students must take the test from unless exempt. If you already have proficient knowledge of a subject, you could prove competency through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) sponsored by the College Board.
