Money shouldn't keep you from reaching your goals.
You have your own background and goals that may be completely different from other students, so your program tuition may be different as well. There are countless ways to help finance your educational goals, from traditional loans and financial aid. ATI College, our financial aid staff will help you explore your options and discover which work best for you.
This grant program is designed to assist undergraduate students who want to continue their education beyond high school and can demonstrate need. Every student is entitled to apply for a Federal Pell Grant. Eligibility is determined by a standard U.S. Department of Education formula, which uses family size, income, and resources to determine need. The actual amount of the award is based upon the cost of attendance, enrollment status, and the amount of money appropriated by Congress to fund the program. The Federal Pell Grant makes it possible to provide a foundation of financial aid to help defray the costs of a post-secondary education. Unlike loans, the Federal Pell Grant does not usually have to be paid back.
Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
Federal Stafford loans, available through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, are low-interest loans made to the student by the US Department of Education. The loan must be used to pay for direct and/or indirect educational expenses. Subsidized loans are need-based, while unsubsidized loans are not. Repayment begins six months after the student graduates, withdraws from school, or falls below half-time enrollment status.
Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS)
The Federal Direct PLUS Loan is available to parents of dependent undergraduate students. These loans are not based on need; however, when combined with other resources, the loan value cannot exceed the student's cost of attendance. A credit check is required, and either or both parents may borrow through this program. Repayment begins within 60 days of final disbursement of the loan within a loan period.
Private loans offer alternative financing options to cover tuition and fees. A Financial Aid staff member can help guide you through the available options.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) is available to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor's or professional degree. Unlike a loan, the FSEOG does not have to be repaid. When determining the priority-based order in which students will be awarded FSEOG funds, ATI College considers those students with exceptional financial need who will also be receiving Federal Pell Grant monies.
Veterans Administration Funding
ATI College is approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs for Montgomery GI Bill benefits.
