Hello ,
MedlinePlus I was approved for a Pell Grant ( EFC is 0) . I'm in California . I have the intention to take a short online course at a community college , just to hone my skills for my event planning company that I am working . I'd like to take some certification courses Event Management , Event Marketing , who start their business courses , etc MedlinePlus MedlinePlus These are all certification courses , but are offered as online courses within the university community ( Orange Coast College ) . Registration is the same as any person who is signing up to register for a degree program . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Does the Pell Grant cover these classes , or do I have to specifically enrolled in a degree program ? Ideally , I would get only the skills and training related to the field I will not go through the whole degree program ( maybe later , but not now ) . I just need to make sure the Pell Grant / Student Loans will pay for it . Thanks MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Also, if you are going to pay for it , are there any other recommended community colleges that offer this type of online training , with the exception of Orange Coast College ? Starting a new business , Event / Wedding Coordination / Management .. marketing your business , etc. .. I do not want to go to college met online . I would prefer a community college that offers online classes . Thank you !

You would have to check with the financial aid office of the schools . I've been working on F / A for 5 years at a community college and about to have a certified list approved and not approved. Most likely you will be able to get it though.
