Come Back Home
DATE On July 30, 2020

If you want to live without regret, take the “Rocking Chair Test.” Pretend you are sitting on the front porch, watching the sunset, and looking back on your life. You graduated from high school and started working right away, but you soon realized that job wasn't right for you. Then you discovered a career you could love. You started college to train for it, but you had to quit for one reason or another. Maybe you had kids that required your full attention. Maybe you couldn't afford tuition, so you kept working jobs you did not enjoy.

What if you could have finished that degree? If you had been provided the right resources, would you have chosen differently at that fork in the road? Would financial aid, job placement assistance, or a friend willing to listen have made the difference?

You are still part of the Rockford family, and we want what's best for you. Our hope is that you will look back 30, 40, or 50 years from now and be proud that you achieved your goals. COVID-19 has disrupted life for many of us, but that doesn't mean you can't still work toward the career you deserve. Many of our programs now incorporate an online option, allowing you to spend less time on campus. For example, our AAS Veterinary Technician program breaks down as follows:

  Lecture Lab    
AAS Veterinary Technician Online On Campus Externship Total
Clock Hours 940 330 280 1550
Percentage 61.00% 21.00% 18.00% 100.00%

No matter what your concerns are, feel free to contact us at 888.680-6682. We don't want you to spend the rest of your days wishing you had taken a different path. Our admissions representatives are here to listen and make it as easy as possible to come back home.
