Student Information


Four things to check carefully before applying to a college or university:


  • Fees: Fees can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to the tuition. Some colleges charge a parking fee, a library fee, an application fee, an audit fee, a lab fee, technology fee, ATI fee, graduation fee, placement testing, and even more. These fees can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that does not charge additional fees.1
  • Textbooks: Many colleges and universities require you to purchase textbooks and supplies. This can add thousands of dollars to the tuition. Find a college or university that includes books in the tuition.1
  • Laptop: A laptop with the right software is essential for today’s college work. A laptop with the right software can cost over a thousand dollars. Find a college or university that provides a laptop you can use in school and keep when you graduate.1,4
  • Grants, Loans, and Scholarships: Student financial aid can be complex and you need help to be sure that you will get all the financial aid, grants, and loans for which you qualify. Find a college or university that provides help with all of the forms and paperwork.

All tuition numbers are not equal; check carefully.

Disability Services

Eligibility for Services

In order to receive accommodations, students must meet the following criteria:

  1. Have a documented disability (documentation must be supplied) that presents a significant barrier to the educational process, and
  2. Request services from Disability Services through the Dean or Director of Student Services.
    Provisional eligibility, which allows students to receive limited services and accommodations, may be granted in the following situations:
  3. The student provides documentation that is outdated or incomplete and is in the process of obtaining updated documentation, or
  4. The student does not have ready access to required documentation, but provides some other form of legitimate evidence of disability and the resulting limitations and agrees to provide the required documentation in a timely fashion.

Documentation Requirements

Students are required to provide the institution with medical or psychological documentation in order to receive accommodations. All medical information received by the Institution remains confidential and is released to other Institution personnel only with the student’s written permission. Specific documentation requirements may vary slightly depending on the disability. Generally, students should use the following guidelines in determining what constitutes adequate documentation:

  • Statement of disability, including diagnosis, instruments/ tests used to reach that diagnosis, and current medications (if any) used to treat the condition and their potential side effects, signed by a qualified medical/psychological professional;
  • Statement of the current impact of the disability on academic performance;
  • Recommendations for appropriate academic accommodations.
    1. If the student’s documentation is not current (within the last three to five years), or if the student has a learning disability and the most recent testing was prior to age 16, the student will be asked to seek more current testing and/or diagnostic information. This is to ensure that any accommodations made by the Institution are best suited to the student’s current needs and/or level of functioning.

      Accommodations

      Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations at the Institution. Institution management will determine what reasonable accommodations to provide based appropriate documentation that outlines the needs of the student and the demands of the course.

      Disclaimers

      1. Except for a few programs (see catalog), CollegeAmerica does not charge extra fees or charge for books and supplies. CollegeAmerica provides students a laptop computer with software that the student may use in school and keep upon graduation. To compare our tuition to the tuition of another institution, you would need to add up the other institution’s cost for tuition, books, fees, supplies, a laptop, and software before making such comparison.

      2. The Job Placement Rate reported for each program is calculated pursuant to the job employment rate calculation methodology of the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (“ACCSC”). The data used for the Job Placement rate calculation is the data reported on the ACCSC 2015 Annual Institutional Report. N/A means Not Applicable. These numbers are extracted from our database. Just as in every database, whether from government or other colleges and universities, there may be potential errors in the database. While we have verified these numbers and taken care to be as precise as possible, there could be an error rate of plus or minus 10%. Thus, please note this potential error rate.

      CollegeAmerica does not guarantee placement in jobs or salaries that future graduates may earn (see the Enrollment Agreement). Salaries vary greatly depending on employer, specialty and geographic area. Starting salaries will vary by location and may be lower or higher than the median salary. Not all programs are available at all locations.

      3. Tuition and Fees are an estimate of the total tuition that will be charged for a student to complete the program of study and assumes that the student would have:

      • begun the program of study in a Fall module in 2015;
      • taken a full-time course load each academic term until the student graduated from the program of study, unless the number of credits required to graduate from the program in the student’s last academic term of attendance is less than a full-time course load, in which case the student is assumed to have taken all of the courses containing all of the remaining credits required to graduate during that last academic term;
      • not transferred in, or tested out of, any credits;
      • successfully completed each course in the program of study and made satisfactory academic progress through graduation; and
      • taken only those courses required to graduate from the program of study and not repeated, withdrawn from, or failed any courses.

      4. Does not apply to master’s programs.

      Tuition is as of the Fall module 2015

      The completion rate quoted in the Gainful Employment charts only take into account students who completed the program during the federal award year. This rate is calculated pursuant to the Department of Education methodology as prescribed in 34 CFR Part 668 (S668.6(c)).
