I've been laid off from 3 contract jobs this year (so no unemployment), and my industry is in the toilet. Good news about that is, my income is terrible this year - so I could qualify for some financial aid right now, and want to attend school while I qualify for aid (now). Are there any open enrollment financial aid eligible online certificate programs? Any that are open enrollment, so they don't require transcripts? I've attended a dozen schools over the years in high school and college for summer schools, winter intersession, etc. so it would cost me a small fortune to get transcripts from all schools. I have a 4.0 GPA for nearly the past decade of classes, probably a 3.0 GPA barely before that. I wasn't expelled from school, it just would cost me a whole lot of money to get all transcripts from all schools attended. So, I'm hoping not to have to need transcripts for a certificate program. I don't have yet a bachelor's, so I'm not ready for a master's program. I can't afford to attend my original school right now, so I can't finish my bachelor's right now. (My industry is in the toilet, 3 job layoffs for me this year, I can't just "work more hours" to pay for it.) The only remaining requirement is a few year Spanish proficiency by class or exam. I've tried self-studying Spanish for a few years, and it's just not working. I have a hard time with languages, ADD/ADHD (untreated, can't afford treatment right now), autism spectrum (asperger's, major sensory processing issues-- McDonalds jobs aren't something I could manage, otherwise I would.. I'm that poor right now) with language skills hard for me (even in English), have some health/mobility issues that mean I can't leave the house every day (thankfully I can telecommute in my field), etc. Learning Spanish at a high enough level for my original school right now isn't going to happen. I'm hoping to find a bachelor's certificate program in the meanwhile. I've got time on my hands, and qualify for financial aid-- I just can't learn advanced spanish right now for the above reasons. I'm looking for a certificate program that could actually help me get a job in a better field- marketing, event planning, anything like that. Job-wise, I'm in tech/web. My bachelor's-in-progress is in international relations, and I live in the suburbs, so my BA isn't particularly useful here. I'm hoping a certificate in marketing, business, event planning, something career-relevant would help me 1) get a better job and 2) get some recent GPA scores to help me apply for a master's program after I finish my bachelor's (hopefully next year). My main reason for applying for a certificate right now instead of when I find a better job is---- I qualify for financial aid for the first time ever. So, I want to make use of that and attend school right now while I qualify for aid. I took out HUGE private loans for my bachelor's and couldn't get any financial aid- now I'm so poor I can get financial aid, so I want to use my poverty level right now for good and get my education in a better place and get a certificate program that could help land me a better job. Since I qualify for financial aid right now for the first time in my life, school right now would mean no loans and no debt needed. I want to get back into the school/studying routine so when I'm ready to finally take Spanish and finish my BA, I've got the student routine going already. Are there any open enrollment financial aid eligible online certificate programs?
