Adult students can and should apply for financial aid and scholarships! Below is helpful information about financial aid resources, scholarships, and financial literacy.

Many schools also offer specific scholarships to their programs, so be sure to check your school’s site as they update their financial aid resources.
Many employers offer tuition assistance to their employees. Be sure to ask your employer how you can take advantage of this benefit as requirements may differ at each place of employment. For instance, some employers may require you to be employed for a year before taking advantage of this benefit. Others may require you to pay the cost of tuition up front and then reimburse you upon passing the course. Be sure to get the details before you enroll!
