We all know traveling down the winding road of education can be costly. What is news to some, though, is that the cost doesn’t have to be an obstacle that reroutes the entire plan. Financial Aid can provide a smoother path and alleviate the strain that comes with paying for classes. For students or potential students who qualify, applying for grants and aid can be the fuel needed to finish the race.
The Peloton College Financial Aid Office is committed to assist you in exploring all financial options for which you may qualify to ensure you can pursue your education goals.
Peloton College is committed to helping every student find an avenue for financing their education. There are several financing options available to those who qualify including Federal grants and loans, Veterans Aid (GI BILL), Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), private loans, and cash payments. Options may vary by the education program.
Take some time to walk through the different options that are available to see which apply to you and your needs.
Did someone say free? Grants are essentially free money that you can apply for based on financial status. Most grants do not require a payback unless you do not fulfill your obligation to finish courses at an educational institution.
Veterans Aid (GI Bill):
For US Veterans, the GI Bill covers tuition and fees for up to 36 months in a public institution and close to $22,000 for private. Housing and books supplements are provided as well.
Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA):
According to the US Department of Labor, “The TAA program offers a variety of benefits and reemployment services to help unemployed workers prepare for and obtain suitable employment. Workers may be eligible for training, job search and relocation allowances, income support, and other reemployment services.”
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA):
Funded by the Department of Labor, this grant does not have to be paid back and helps those seeking training in the workforce and trade to get the help and guidance they need.
Loans from banks, credit unions and even parents can provide you with the money needed at private, public or trade institutions.
