Can I register for programs if I am an international student?

How long do I have to complete each lesson?

Do I have to buy additional materials?

All required materials are provided as part of the course and covered in the tuition fee.

Can I get financial assistance?

ed2go courses are non-credit courses, so they do not qualify for federal aid.
