Financial Aid Information for Your Education:


Affording a quality technical or vocational education typically takes some planning and effort, but most families can use numerous strategies to keep the costs within reason. Another resource, Adult Education - Going Back to School, discusses hurdles families may face when a parent goes back to school, such as finding financial aid. Probably one of the best sources of of information lies with the financial aid officers at the individual vocational or technical schools you are considering. They will be happy to talk with potential students and explain the full range of options that they offer, and may be able to provide some information on the outside school funding sources available. Understand that each school (classroom locations or online programs) may offer different strategies and may have different policies. It is important to ask each school about the specifics of their various funding options and see how these options fit within your school financial planning.

To request free information directly from each education provider please visit our online guide to vocational schools, technical schools, or online schools, find the school that interest you, and simply request their complimentary information:
