Financial Aid

You've made a decision to get an education, and we promise to work with you to develop a personal financing plan to cover the cost of your education. That means tuition, books, fees, supplies—everything you'll need to invest in your future.

We're so sure we can help you that we make this promise: If we're unable to develop your personal financing plan, we'll refund any payments you've made before starting school.

Our Financial Aid department specializes in making it as easy as possible for you to afford your training. For many students, that means helping to identify financial aid sources like student loans, grants, payment plans and scholarship programs.

Your Financial Aid Advisor will:

  • review all sources of student financial aid and find the resources available to you
  • explain the eligibility requirements and assist you with the application process for each program
  • explain award estimates for both state and federal grant programs based on personal information provided by you
  • be available to you on a daily basis
  • continually monitor your financial aid status and keep you informed
  • assist you with reapplication for grants and student loans in your second academic year
  • help you and your family understand the financial aid correspondence that you will receive from various federal and state agencies
  • counsel you regarding debt management

James R. Agras, Chief Executive Officer"Whatever your financial circumstances, we will help you find ways to make your training affordable."
