Other Educational Sources for Seniors

     A few months back I missed an extraordinary opportunity to write a few pages about this site in a newly released book.  I had not been posting in a while due to personal reasons, and so I missed this email from an expert in tuition waivers and discounts for all age groups.  Anywhere that I can find information to save you money while pursuing yours goals, whether it be my website or someone else's, I will always pass that information along.  Hopefully these collections of resources will help you as well as your children and grandchild.
     As I was saying, I received this email about my website.  I decided to do a little research on this person.  Her name is Jennifer Cook DeRosa and she is a mother of four sons whom she homeschooled.  She is an award winning chef.  Her love for cooking didn't stop there because she launched a culinary degree program at her local community college.  Furthermore, she spent the next 20 years dedicating her life to higher education administration advising and instructing students. She is also that author of two books in the education arena.  She did as we all did to pay for her culinary degree.  However, she used the techniques taught in her book to earn subsequent degrees.  In this particular book, she has dedicated an entire chapter on senior citizens seeking credit or non-credit courses tuition free.  The book is called Completely Free Colleges.  She has also written Homeschooling for College Credit.  I will post a link for you to acquire these books.  You can also find her on Facebook.  Just search Completely Free Colleges and you will see the many resources listed there.  Here are the links to get you started with your search.  I hope this helps.
