Quelques repères historique sur la distance en formation

Damon Ing's curator insight, July 3, 12:16 AM
This article discusses in detail the alternatives to the traditional classroom. It offers a different variety of ideas that could be used to enhance the traditional distance education model. It is interesting to see that flexibility is one of the strongest benefits to distance learning and has become very popular in other countries. Read on to see the authors opinion on some very important topics.

I think that being able to afford college should be in the forefront of our young minds, however going to any length, such as selling your eggs, is a crazy thought to most people!

CSINowedu's curator insight, January 10, 2014 6:37 AM

The Department of Education changed the wording of the form in some areas to utilize inclusive terms. Instead of specifying "father/stepfather" for one parent and "mother/stepmother" for the second, the form will now ask for "Parent 1 (father/mother/stepparent)" and "Parent 2 (father/mother/stepparent)."

Jewel Graham's curator insight, January 12, 2014 10:36 PM

I found this helpful before applying for the FAFSA application because it tells you what they have improved or changed on the FAFSA form. Complete the FAFSA soon, the quicker the better!

Paula Bersabe's curator insight, August 10, 2014 3:44 PM

I've ask counselors both from Everett High and EvCC about FAFSA but both school gave me vague answers about it, saying it's due first thing in New Year's day. But when I went to visit U of W Seattle, I asked one of the financial counselor and pointed out where to find it on their website. When I did, it made me more sense than ever! You can send from their site to 8 more colleges and the earlier you send it in, the better!

This is interesting becase if some students can get their AA in a year then maybe for some other programs, such as nursing will also be able to be onky a year and lower cost.
