Baton Rouge, LA (PRWEB) February 01, 2012
Baton Rouge School of Court Reporting (BRSCR) announces it has joined with TFC Credit Corporation to offer tuition financing for its current and prospective students. According to Karen Vornkahl, Administrative Director of the school, the partnership will give students a wider range of flexible financing plans, including lower monthly payments.
BRSCR is an online and onsite court reporting school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. In its sixth year, the school teaches Court Reporting and CART/Captioning for both steno machine writing and voice writing. Scopist Training and several administrative-type courses round out the curriculum.
"While we continue to offer an interest-free monthly payment plan," says Vornkahl, "the addition of TFC Tuition Financing lets some students extend the payment period with only modest interest, thereby lowering their payments during schooling."
According to the TFC Credit Corporation website, TFC has been providing tuition financing for students since 1970, with the mission of providing financing for students who are serious about their careers and serious about their personal success. Use of TFC Financing can help students to either establish credit or strengthen a credit rating.
Explains Vornkahl, "We always encourage students to try to pay as they go during school to lower the overall cost of their education and to prevent staggering repayment obligations after graduation. We feel like TFC Credit provides a good balance of pay-as-you-go mentality and fiscally responsible financing."
Because BRSCR is licensed as a private school, it has flexibility in meeting students' needs for both scheduling and financial obligation. It offers day, night, and online classes with a variety of tuition rates ranging in the $300+ per month range, rates much lower than many larger schools with higher overhead and more demanding restrictions.
According to a US News report, Court Reporting is listed as one of the 50 Best Careers in 2011, with "strong growth" predicted over the next decade. In addition, the same skills that are used by court reporters can also be used for CART/Captioning, which includes classroom captioning to a laptop computer for hearing impaired students to follow along with live lectures, plus on-air broadcast captioning over a modem to a television station.
Training to become a court reporter through BRSCR ranges in length of time from 9 months for a voice writer to approximately 24-30 months for a machine writer. Scopist training is a 6-month course.
BRSCR has a sister campus in Metairie, Louisiana, Professional Institute of Court Reporting, Inc., which offers the same financial arrangements of an interest-free monthly payment and/or extended-pay tuition financing.
