Financing your education can be complicated and confusing. Our financial aid staff will help you through every step and make the process as easy as possible.
We want to assist every Financial Aid applicant in obtaining the financial aid assistance he/she is legally entitled to receive. The student's eligibility, the school's packaging criteria, and the amount and types of financial aid available determine the types of grants and loans for which you will qualify. Our Financial Aid department has a number of packages consisting of grants and loans available to those who qualify. These packages are tailored to each student's financial need. Trust us, these help, and most EIT students can take advantage of them.
We take pride in having a staff that is committed to working one-on-one with every person that enters our doors in search of financial assistance.
For questions regarding financial aid for new students and enrolled students, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Over 80% of current students, as well as those who have completed their education and are now successful graduates, have used financial aid to cover some or all of their educational expenses.
Everyone's financial aid package is unique to them. The type of financial package that will work for you is not necessarily the best one for the next person. There are several factors that come into play when completing a financial package. We will work personally with each individual to ensure that the plan we set is the best for you.
Information on all educational assistance programs is available at the school or may be obtained by contacting the various local agencies such as: Veteran Affairs, Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, Office of the Visually Handicapped, CareerLink, etc.
