For any questions about financial aid, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Aid is offered based on need, merit, and motivation. The amount of aid awarded can range from 10% to 50% of the tuition cost for a course. We accept and review financial aid applications on a rolling basis. Apply early as we have a limited amount of space in each course set aside for students receiving financial aid.
Aid is given on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are responsible for paying a $50 application fee. That fee is applied to the tuition for a course if financial aid is awarded. If financial aid is not awarded, the fee is 100% refundable.
SPRING COURSES: Apply by March 1 for courses beginning May 26 – June 30
SUMMER COURSES: Apply by May 1 for courses beginning July 21 – Sept 1
FALL COURSES: Apply by July 1 for courses beginning Sept 15 – Oct 6
