Brightwood College Commitment
Brightwood College stands by its services and the education it provides.

If students notify the school that they will not be staying beyond the Conditional Admittance Period, then they will not be charged tuition.
Brightwood College Instructors
Brightwood College instructors bring real world experiences to the classroom. They provide students with the most current industry standards and practices.
We keep education relevant by employing instructors with real-world experience in the field, who bring their career backgrounds to the classroom. Our programs are continually assessed by faculty, staff and members of the business and education communities to help ensure your studies align with your career goals. Programs offered by Brightwood College focus on local employment needs, in areas such as allied health, nursing and technical and professional programs.

Students learn with materials and equipment that they would use on the job. They gain the ability to display knowledge and skills that employers are looking for.
Students can find externship or practicum sites with the school's assistance. They can apply the knowledge they gain at Brightwood College to real-world career settings and can increase their confidence in job interviews.
Externships and practicums are not required for all programs.
Brightwood College wants to help students start their career journeys. The admissions process for each student starts with a Career Planning Session where the student's career goals are discussed; information about the school and its programs is shared; a campus tour is provided; and the student has the opportunity to meet with a Career Services Adviser and Financial Aid Officer.
Admissions requirements include, but are not limited to, proof of high school graduation and entrance assessment. For information on specific program requirements, students should contact the Admissions Department.
Financial Aid and Military Benefits
Financial aid is available for those who qualify. A financial aid officer will be able to assist students in determining their eligibility for federal loans, private aid, state and federal grants, scholarships, and other forms of aid.
In support of the military community, Brightwood College also offers a 30% discount in tuition for active duty personnel, military spouses, veterans, and dependent of veterans or active duty personnel.
Students should contact the Financial Aid Department for more information about financial aid and the military and veteran benefits programs the campus supports.
Professional Skill Building
Within the classroom, it is our mission not only to provide vocational training, but also to help you develop the professional skills, values, attitudes and strategies that will enhance your potential for success on campus, in your career and through life.
