Career Point College is an eligible institution for the FFELP (Federal Family Education Loan Program), the Federal Pell Grant Program, Federal Perkins Loan Program, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, and Federal College Work-Study.
Students who do not have sufficient resources to pay their tuition and fees may also qualify for private assistance loans provided by the College (Emily Buck) and/or provided by the College’s private loan contractors (Tuition Options, etc.). The terms of the loan vary based on the student’s credit rating; Interest charges may range from 9% to 18%; repayment periods will vary from between 3 to 5 years; and amounts borrowed are based on student need. Students are encouraged to apply for financial assistance at the start of the program; however, applications are accepted at any time during the enrollment period.
For those students enrolling in the Nurse Aide program, funding will not be made available. This is a cash only program.
