    as a high school student, my teachers always spoke out against going to college. there was no distinction made between going to a jewish college or a non jewish college. college was bad and that was it. now im a few years out of high school and many of my friends are in non-Jewish colleges because they figured that by going to college they r already sort of breaking out of the chabad system and they made no distinction between going to a all girls jewish or co-ed not jewish college. I think that now days because more people are… Read more »

    Pay cash or do not go. These loans allow for exorbitant tuition–sane tuition would bear some proportional resemblance to expected wages going forward, but in the majority of cases it does not. You cannot make these loans go away save by paying them off, no matter what, meaning no bankruptcy protection. So you will be paying it back whether you benefit from the degree or not. This special legal legal treatment is given to these loans so that they are easy to give and easy to get. The secular world is buckling under student loan debt currently. Don’t blindly follow.… Read more »

    “to where you can work and pay them as you go -”
    Obama just signed an executive order guaranteeing just that.
    why not just go to the open house and hear wha they have to say.

    now the problem is that our boys dont learn english in school so is this college suitable for them? do they have programs like ESL, to teach them english from scratch and help them?

    Can overseas students get help with grants if they have been in the Yeshiva system in the US for the last 5 years? Or is it a definite no, no?

    all of you should go to hear Rabbi Lerner speak, they say he knows what he does.
    aask him all your questions.
    many universities no longer accept an Excelsior degree, its not real.
    an online program is best for our boys, they have more time to complete assignments.

    To get in to a good college you need good high school diploma ….this forum /organization must go to local Yeshivos to help the young students to obtain High School diploma during school years first ..and only then help the students in the college market .. Let our kids be successful from the very young age – all out community will benefit

    And the girls?

    This seems to be perfect for our girls.
    They graduate high school, it’s a kosher degree in a kosher environment.

    More and more respected business journals are saying how business sense (which learning well in Yeshiva prepares you for best) is much more important than a degree, which is increasingly less important. Making friendly connections is also of far greater value. The Rebbe’s derech is always the best way. There are other reasons not to go to college aside from the shmutz.

    I’m currently in the program going for a BA in behavioral science. I advice anyone, that is seriously interested, to go and meet Rabbi Lerner. He knows his stuff and really helps you in every way he can. I’m not a american citizen and Rabbi Lerner was able to use my foreign high-school diploma, Yeshiva and Smicha credits and get me into the program. Obviously, the exact financial aid amount depends on each individual student’s situation, but in my case about 50% of the fees are funded through FASFA. Again, Rabbi Lerner is a real mentch and will help you… Read more »

    This sounds great, especially with the amounts of credits able to be transferred. For any young women looking into different schooling options, there is also Sara Schenirer in boro park (and lakewood and monsey) which has great program if you’re the type to want to sit in class and also do online courses.

    I am a graduate of one of the earlier classes. I got my master in educational leadership through YIEP. I had 3 little children, and was working 2 jobs. It was hard work that demanded organization, but well worth it. I was able to complete in in under 2 years.

    Unlike other online colleges, this one has an actual brick and mortar college. The professors are great and I learned a lot!!
    Rabbi Lerner is very helpful as well.
    Also, they are understanding of religious issues. When I had a chasuna in the family and had to go to sheva brachos 3 nights in a row, my professor at that time let me submit my assignment 2 days late.
