Financial Aid

Stop Dreaming, Start Flying

We have partnered with the Meritize Platform to provide our students with financing options to fund your education. With a Meritize Loan, you can get credit for your merit and potentially improve your loan options by sharing your academic history or military background, if approved, full deferment during school is available for certain products.

Funding your future

There has never been a better time to gain indemand skills and jump start your future. The Meritize Platform provides merit-based funding options for career training programs to help you get started.

You are more than your credit score

The Meritize Platform believes your past achievements are important indicator of your potential. That is why Meritize looks beyond FICO and uses your previous academic or military achievements to potentially enhance your credit evaluation and loan options.
