Scholarships & Private Loans
Scholarships are gift funds that are often awarded to students based on various criteria including high academic achievement, special talents, or other associations with the sponsor. Like grants, scholarships do not have to be repaid. However, if you are using Federal Student Aid (FSA), you will need to declare any scholarship awards which may affect your total FSA eligibility.
While we don't directly offer university scholarships, there are many opportunities to apply for private scholarships. In fact, more than 100 organizations have provided our students with scholarships, so it may be worth your time to investigate these and other avenues.

Organizations that Have Provided Scholarships to our Students
NOTE: If you decide to use an awarded scholarship to pay for school, you must indicate this payment method when you register for courses. Once the scholarship funds are verified, you'll be able to enter your classroom.
Private loan programs are typically available through banks, credit unions, credit cards, and other private loan companies.
- Because the terms and conditions of private loans vary, we recommend that you carefully explore your federal aid eligibility before applying for private loans.
- Only direct costs, including course materials for graduate students and technology expenses are considered when certifying loans.
- Once you have been approved for a private student loan, you can email the financial aid office to include course materials or technology fees in your loans.
