Getting More Bang for Your Buck at School

September 30, 2015

Obviously when you go to school, you’ll get help in the classroom. But what about all the other stuff?
You still have a life, and now you’re adding on homework, school expenses and trying something you might not have done before. That’s a LOT on your plate, and we want you to know that Carrington College is here to help. It’s our promise to you, to be there every step of the way!

Check out the great add-ons included in your Carrington College education.

We ASPIRE to Help You Succeed

Woohoo, you’re starting school!

But, how are you supposed to work while going to school? Who’s going to watch the kids when you’re in class? We get it, juggling school work with the real world can be TOUGH.

That’s why Carrington College offers our students access to a confidential[1] service called ASPIRE.  They’ve got you covered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Seriously. And you’re not just talking to some random person – you’ll get a specialist who’s great at working through personal problems, legal issues, family drama, financial or school concerns, you name it.

How can ASPIRE help?

  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Childcare
  • Eldercare

Remember, ASPIRE specialists are here 24/7!  Stressing at midnight? They’re on it.  Wake up at 2am in a cold sweat?  Give ‘em a call at 888-470-1531.


When was the last time you were in an actual library? Unless you’re researching a paper or taking the kids to story time, you probably aren’t used to scanning those shelves. But we know the ins and outs of every stack!

You’ll have access to a Master’s prepared librarian.  You can also visit any of our campus libraries during campus hours for help from our Student Success Center Managers.

24/7 Online Tutoring

Let’s face it… school can be hard! You’re going to be learning stuff you’ve probably never even seen before, and chances are your friends and family won’t know what the heck you’re talking about.

Guess what…we do! If your homework looks like it’s written in another language, we’re here to help it make sense. If you’re an online student, our tutors will help whenever you need it.[2] And… you can get help from home. The tutors chat with you online to help get you through that tough assignment.

We promise, they’re real people.

Are you an on-campus student? Prefer to meet in person? We have that too! Our campus Student Success Centers are here to help you succeed.

Career Services

We’re not just going to teach you what you need to know and then say see ya later.

Seriously, you think we would give you all the tools you need and then leave you out to hang? No way! Your Carrington College Career Services team is here for you long after you graduate.

We’ll give you advice to help you find that dream job and make sure your resume is HR ready.

Want to make sure you’re interview ready?  We’ll practice with you!  We can’t guarantee a job or what you’ll make, but we can coach you every step of the way.

Make Sure it’s a Fit

Planning on going to school online? Awesome!

You’re busy, and we get that. You want to learn on your time (and in your pjs). Now you can! This whole online college thing is still pretty new. We think it’s awesome, and we’re sure you will too. But if you decide during your first 6 weeks of class that learning online isn’t your thing, you can cancel your enrollment without ever getting a bill. If that doesn’t show we’re on your team, we don’t know what does! We’ve got all that info for you in our Academic Catalog in the Online Conditional Admission section.

Scroll back up and look at that list again.

That’s a LOT of extras! We know you’re putting a lot of time (and money) into your education, and we want you to know we appreciate that. At Carrington College you’re not just our students, you’re our family. And we’re committed to helping you succeed.
