Some Background Information About This Guide
Why is it called the “Next Student Trade School Guide?
NextStudent.com was a website that provided help with student loans, Federal Student Loan consolidation services, a scholarship search engine, information about the FAFSA, Stafford Loans and Federal PLUS Loan applications etc. Helping students obtain financial aid is daunting task with a never-ending pile of paperwork. NextStudent provide content and services to try make this process easier. At some point they encountered financial and business difficulties which forced them to shutter their operations.
This is where Best-Trade-Schools.net comes in. We saw the opportunity to merge the resources from the Next Student enterprise with our ever growing trove of trade school resources. This trade school student guide fulfills the mission, offering up updated information on the same topics, with an eye helping prospective students of trade schools and vocational schools.
