lisamoe: (serious)

Today Jesse and I went down to Tulsa Tech to see if any of the classes for the pre-engineering program there would transfer as college credits at Tulsa Community College.  They didn't seem to know, but we got a number to call to find out.  Their classes don't typically transfer to colleges, but they have cooperative agreements with some of the local colleges (including his) for specific classes to transfer, we just have to find out if anything he needs does.

Anyway, while we were there, Jesse put in his application and jumped through all their hoops for admission.  Once we started looking at their course offerings though, we found that he can take private pilot ground school there and there's no tuition cost, and fees are something like $15.   Jesse has had a lifelong dream (obsession, actually) with planes and being a pilot, but has kind of put it away because of the expense of pilot training.   It turns out though, that TCC has flight labs you can do after this TTC ground school, and the fees for those might be eligible for financial aid.

There are openings for the program in spring, so we made an appointment to go out to the Riverside aviation campus on Monday, get a tour and maybe enroll for January.  As I told Jesse, he should take this step even if he doesn't know where the money for the next step is coming from, because if the opportunity does arise to take the flight lab here or get student flight hours somewhere else, he's got to have that first step done.
