Scranton, PA (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
The rising cost of tuition and educational expenses are a major concern for today's college student. Both loans and grants are becoming more and more difficult to obtain as many states have announced slashing their education budget. Tuition continues to rise and some reports announce costs have quadrupled in the past four years.
Penn Foster remains an affordable alternative during these difficult financial times by offering individual financing plans designed to match students' needs and financial resources.
Penn Foster College is currently offering students savings of up to 28% off tuition and 0% APR financing. Tuition fees include all textbooks, study supplies, and learning materials. All programs comprise the learning materials you need to complete your training and are included in the one low tuition price you pay. However, in the programs that include computer training, you will need to have access to a computer (see individual program descriptions for system requirements).
Payment options give students the flexibility to make interest-free monthly payments via check, credit card, money order, or automatic withdrawal from checking and savings accounts from U.S. banks.
Upon completing your program, Penn Foster offers access to Alumni Career Services that are designed to help students find employment in their chosen field. These services include resume preparation, job searches, submitting resumes, cover letter design, interview prep, and much more.
Penn Foster programs are affiliated with DANTES, which qualifies U.S. military personnel for tuition reimbursement. Many Penn Foster programs are approved for U.S. Armed Forces veteran's education benefits.
