Posted: September 2, 2021
Updated: 9/8/2021 12:13 p.m. Read below for commonly asked questions regarding the closing of Career Quest Learning Centers, Inc. and the transfer process with our teach-out partner Ross Education.
Will my credits transfer?
Yes, to Career Quest’s teach-out partners such as Ross Education. For institutions that are not a Career Quest teach-out partner, it is up to the school that you are applying to.
Will I need to take additional courses at Ross?
Career Quest and Ross Education have come to a teach-out agreement, and Ross will do their best to ensure students can complete their program with the best opportunity for on-time graduation. Career Quest students who are transferring their academic studies to Ross Education will begin classes with Ross on September 20th. In order to meet the graduation requirements for Ross, you may have to take a couple of additional classes, but your graduation date should fall close in line with your projected graduation date given to you at Career Quest. When you meet with financial aid you will receive a Tuition Package Worksheet (TPW). The worksheet will provide you with a specific grad date based on your academic plan. You will have a chance to review it at that time and they will be able to answer any questions that you may have at that point. Some Career Quest programs match perfectly with Ross programs, while others do not, however, you will not have to pay any more for your education at Ross than you did at Career Quest.
Do I have to finish my program at Ross?
Ultimately, it is the students choice on whether to continue out their education with Ross, however, Career Quest believes that the teach out partnership developed with Ross gives our students the best ability to have a streamlined transfer process and stay on track toward their graduation timeline.
