Any type of financial aid available? Grants? Loans? VA Discounts?
We do offer in-house payment plans on a case-by-case basis, approved by the School Director. Generally ½ of the program is paid in advance with the balance due before certificates and licenses are awarded.
But why do you not offer any scholarships or discounts?
Keeps the entire course price as low as possible for everyone. In reality other places charge more so they can offer a few discounts.
We are not a “Title 4” school, regulated by federal government, therefore not eligible for federal or state tuition assistance programs.
Is the school accredited and are credits transferable to other places?
We are accredited by the State with our NCT Program and you get your license from the State upon satisfactory completion of the course. Our MA Program is designed and approved to the extent that you are eligible to sit for the National MA Certification Test. If our program was not approved you would not be allowed to sit for the test.
