We believe that BOSS should be accessible to anyone capable of the challenge. Check out the variety of options we have to help realize your goal of attending a BOSS course.
For any questions about tuition assistance, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition assistance is offered based on need, merit, and motivation. The amount of assistance awarded can range from 10% to just over 40% of the tuition cost. We accept and review tuition assistance applications on a rolling basis. Apply early, as we have limited space in each course set aside for students receiving tuition assistance.
We award assistance on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are responsible for paying a $250 deposit for their course (refundable minus processing fees within 7 days). The deposit is applied to the course tuition if assistance is granted, and is returned if not. Students who receive tuition assistance will not qualify for any additional discounts.
Step 1: Follow the link below that matches your desired course length.
Step 2: Go through the checkout process to fill out your application.
Step 3: Pay the deposit to submit your application. The deposit applies to the course tuition.
