I tried community college and it was not for me; I was just overwhelmed. At Career Quest, it was almost like a family.
Investing in Your Dream
Find the option to help make your education more affordable!
In an effort to help support the mission of local workforce development agencies, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and the educational goals of our students and their families, Career Quest will make tuition discounts available for those students who qualify.
Please schedule a time to meet with an admissions representative and financial aid administrator to help determine the best tuition discount option.
You must meet eligibility requirements for the following discount programs. Ask a Career Quest financial aid administrator for details.
“Need a Break” Credit
Our “Need A Break” credit enables students to earn credit for any in-school payments made on their Career Quest loan. Students are eligible if they graduate from their Career Quest Program and meet monthly payment obligations while in school. The amount of credit eligible is 50% of your initial loan from Career Quest up to a maximum of $2,000. Credit will not exceed the amount of out-of-pocket payments made.
Career Quest offers a tuition discount to any student who is receiving financial aid from the Michigan Works!, WIA Adult, WIA Youth, WIA Dislocated Worker or JET/PATH Programs. If you’re enrolled in a comprehensive training program at Career Quest, you may be eligible to receive up to $5,550 to help pay for your tuition.
Armed Forces Tuition Discount
To serve or have served in the armed forces is a sacrifice worthy of reward. If you are a veteran or on active duty status, you, your spouse, or your children may be eligible for a tuition discount of 25% from Career Quest. Certifying officials are available to help with your application.
Graduate Together Tuition Discount
The Graduate Together Tuition Discount offers a discount to friends and family members of students who attend Career Quest at the same time as the current student. The discount is 10% of the total tuition cost for each friend or family member and is applied to any remaining tuition balance for the current student.
AAS Early Enrollment Discount
Career Quest offers a tuition discount for active diploma program students who choose to continue their education onto one of our Associate programs. Students may be eligible for a 15% discount on tuition associated with re-enrollment into one of Career Quest’s AAS degree programs before completing a diploma program.
Continuing Education Discount
Career Quest offers a tuition discount for students who are graduates of one of our diploma or short-term programs. This discount provides 10% off of overall tuition, and accounts for all diploma level and AAS degree programs.
Dislocated Worker Discount
Have you been dislocated or displaced from your current job? Career Quest is proud to offer a 15% tuition discount to help ease you through the transition. Whether you’ve been laid off, are struggling with self-employment, or are a displaced stay-at-home parent, we’re ready to assist.
