Students in the accounting degree completion program are considered full-time and may be eligible for state and federal grants or loans. Completion of the Free Applications for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required to determine eligibility. Most students qualify for the Federal Direct Loan Program.
In addition to grants or loans, we offer a deferred payment plan to qualified students who are eligible for reimbursement by their employer. Check with your employer to see if they offer educational assistance. Another option is to arrange a personal payment plan, either by the semester or monthly.
