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 financial aid, 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 financial aid applications on a rolling basis. Apply early, as we have limited space in each course set aside for students receiving tuition assistance.
We award aid on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are responsible for paying a $50 non-refundable application fee. The application fee is applied to the course tuition if assistance is granted. Students who receive tuition assistance will not qualify for any additional discounts.
