|"These eight week, half-semester courses allow students the opportunity to package Business courses during both the first and second half of the semester," notes the Dean of Business, Continuing Education and Customized Training, Rosie Mortenson. "Basically, students can complete courses in half the standard time, and at half the standard tuition-for Minnesotans who are unemployed."
The half-priced program Mortenson refers to is Anoka-Ramsey Community College's recent initiative that provides a 50% tuition grant to those who qualify for unemployment. People who enroll in any open credit and non-credit course at Anoka-Ramsey for the 2009 spring semester, including one or more of the eight-week business courses (see below) that are still open, will save 50% on tuition.
