Furthering your education is both a commitment and an investment that will have lifelong returns. A certification, degree or diploma will open doors to greater career opportunities and increase your earning potential. We understand that funding this investment can be overwhelming. That is why Stanbridge College has a Financial Aid team that will walk you through your options and help you decide on the best financial aid package.
Our Financial Aid team will be there to assist you in filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and plan your financial aid package. Stanbridge College has the following Financial Aid programs available to those who qualify:
Federal Pell Grant
The Federal Pell Grant program provides a foundation of financial aid to which additional aid programs may be added. Unlike a loan, a Federal Pell Grant does not need to be repaid.
Federal Direct Loans
Federal Direct Loans are low-interest loans available to students enrolled at least half-time. This type of funding must be repaid. The student, however, does not begin repayment until six months after leaving school.
Federal Direct Parent (PLUS) Loans
PLUS loans enable parents to borrow funding to assist in paying the educational expenses for a dependent student enrolled at least half-time. Within sixty days of the final disbursement of funding, parents who have received a PLUS loan must begin repayment of the loans.
Sallie Mae Loans
Smart Option student loans are an ideal solution for students who still need funds after they have maximized grants, scholarships, and federal loans.
Cal Grants are awarded by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC). Cal Grant A, B and C are awarded based on enrollment status and GPA during the award year. A student's eligibility is based on the established income, asset eligibility requirement and information based on the results of a current FAFSA. Grants are based on funds available from the State and do not have to be repaid.
