The Institute has a conservative view toward financial aid in that budgets
are constructed with a view to the student's participation in support
of the cost of education. This means that each student is expected, if
at all possible, to meet at least a portion of their basic living costs
from outside sources. The Institute is committed to providing good training
with a high expectation of success at the State Board exam, offered at
a fair price. It is our hope that students can complete their training
with a minimum of indebtedness. It is also our belief that this brief
period of living on a "bare bones" budget will be more than
offset by the absence of large monthly loan payments for many years, permitting
the graduate to concentrate on becoming established in the profession.
To be eligible for and receive aid, a student must:
- have financial need (as determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, otherwise known as the FAFSA).
- have a high school diploma or a General Education Development
- be enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a regular student working
toward a certificate.
- be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen.
- have a valid Social Security Number.
- make satisfactory academic and attendance progress.
- register with the Selective Service, if required.
