They provide programs in hundreds of today's most in-demand occupational fields, including accounting, allied medical, business administration, information technology, legal administration, network administration and nursing.

Career colleges offer a new start - students are often adults looking to achieve the American Dream by obtaining an education directly related to their career goals.
Most students juggle tough outside demands, including full-time jobs and raising families, while completing their education.
Most students would not be able to attend their college without some sort of financial assistance.
Nearly half of career college students are the first generation in their families to pursue higher education.
Forty-three percent are minorities.
