Financial Assistance

If you need financial assistance to pay for the program, you have a number of options.

In some cases, your employer may choose to fund your education. You may also consider a private loan with your banking institution or local credit union. As an alternative, you may apply for a Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan or a Wells Fargo Collegiate Loan.

To qualify/apply for a Sallie Mae or Wells Fargo loan:

  • The cost of the course must exceed $1000. The requested loan amount cannot exceed the course fee.
  • You must be accepted into the course prior to certifying the loan. Complete and submit an application prior to applying for the loan
  • Apply online with Sallie Mae or Wells Fargo.

At this time, the GI Bill will not pay for distance learning online programs.

If you would like help or guidance with the financing process, please feel free to email or contact one of our enrollment counselors at 540-208-3999.
