Default single mom looking for colleges with single parent programs.

Hello, my name is Tara (I'm 23) and I'm from an island in the South Pacific called American Samoa. I am currently going through a divorce, and raising my 2 year old son. I want to go to college in the States, particularly one that has a program for single parents. I have applied to Wilson College, which has a Women With Children Program (WWC), but I'm keeping my options open. Please help me, any info will be appreciated. Any colleges will be useful. Thank you!

The university that I work at offers some childcare for parents attending school. They have 2 different 4 hour sessions that parents can take their children to. They also have students that are studying child development and the such who will come to your home and watch your child in your house. The students normally charge between $5 and $8 an hour though. My university ALSO has childcare referral where childcare providers contact the school and the school keeps information on the childcares availability and charges. There is also government assistance for daycare that you can get information from. The requirements for childcare assistance are pretty steep, but if you are a full time student, you would probably qualify.....just something to look into.

Kent State University in Kent, Ohio has a program for single parents, which includes housing, advising, help with benefits and a book scholarship. The program is called LIFE. Look into it, it's a great program. I'm not even involved in the program, I have friends who are, but the directors still help me out with things and want to help parents get an education.

i've just been suffering through it. taking night classes, and moving tobi around so i can get through it. i keep telling myself that it is a short period of time and we are nearly there.

i would not be able to take any classes if it weren't for my family though.

I wish you the best of luck - sounds like the other people had some good suggestions!
