The Federal Pell Grant Program provides need-based grants to low-income students. Pell Grants do not need to be repaid! Grant award amounts are determined by factors such as: Parent income (if student is dependent), student income (if student is independent), family’s household size, and other factors. Qualifying students can receive up to $7,400 for our full program!

Students and/or parents can borrow money through the Dept of Ed’s loan programs. These loans are not credit based; everyone qualifies for the loans regardless of credit history. The interest on the loans are paid for by the government while the student is attending classes. No payments are due until 6 months after graduation. The current interest rate on these loans is 6.8%.

How to Get Started
To find out what you qualify for, students need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Visitwww.fafsa.ed.gov to get started. You will need our FEDERAL SCHOOL CODE: 041455. Once the FAFSA is completed, a students information will be sent to our school. We will then contact you to let you know what options you will have.
