CLC is approved by the U.S. Department of Education to offer federal student aid in most of our degree programs. Because of our more affordable tuition, CLC students are able to graduate without large amounts of student debt to repay.

You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist.
